Same as for Reentrant Peak. This is the second leg of a three-peak adventure that includes Reentrant Peak (10,100 feet), Peak 10340, and Peak 10077. All three of these ranked summits are on the Continental Divide.
North Ridge, Class 2
From the 9,740-foot connecting saddle with Reentrant Peak, head south up an easy ridge of broken rock with a decent use trail which ends just before reaching the summit of Peak 10340. The summit of Peak 10340 has an ID/MT boundary post and a peace sign (made of talus) just below the summit high point. There is no summit cairn on top.
Return northward on the ridge to Reentrant Peak. From the summit of Reentrant Peak, descend west on easy open tundra to intercept a forested shoulder that leads southwest down to a 9,500-foot connecting saddle with Peak 10077. The forest is not a difficult bushwhack and is short-lived. This concludes the second leg of today’s three-peak journey.
