North Ridge, Class 2

Peak 8554 can easily be climbed from the Trinity Mountain Road [(E)(2.2) on Page 155] from numerous points. I climbed the peak via its Northeast Ridge. This ridge is easily reached by a trail that leads from the road to the saddle between Peak 8554 and Peak 9037. This trail is shown on maps. From the road, it is 0.5 miles to the saddle where you will find a trail junction. From the junction, head west to the top of the ridge and then follow the ridge southwest to the summit.
