I'm wondering if anybody out there has any information on hiking/climbing Burnett Peak in the Santa Lucia Range. Burnett peak is the striking peak that is visible from (and due south of) Hearst Castle and it looks like a very tempting peak to climb. A 30-minute search on Summitpost.org and Google has revealed very little except that Rocky Butte Truck Trail (just north of the peak) has closed access?
Burnett Peak doesn't appear to be on the California Coastal Peaks list either:
Does anyone have any beta on hiking/climbing this thing?
Thanks in advance for any information you may provide!

Strange: I couldn't find any pictures of Burnett Peak with a Google images search. Here's a painting of the peak from Heast Castle (if image doesn't load in browser, double click on the image icon):
Bob Burd.. you out there?
