My group was on top of the next butte to the south, Mahogany Butte, about a week earlier. Wind was absolutely HOWLING.
A couple pics
This one shows the three XR650R's of our group parked on top in the sage and Mahogany trees
The mess we rode through to get to the top
And looking north toward Beatys Butte
About where MasterMarine seemed to have lost the track, the trick to getting to the top is to keep circling toward the top in a clockwise direction - looking down on the peak. You'll then get to a somewhat flatter area just off the south side of the peak, then you can ride over the boulders and up to the top.
Awesome pics, thanks for such a great thread and trip report.
