The Climb

From the 8,561-foot connecting saddle with Peak 8961, scramble east-southeast up through sagebrush (not too bad) then short scrub to the summit ridge. Go left/northeast to reach the high point of Peak 9161. The summit has a small cairn, with triangulation wiring laying on the nearby ground.
