Elevation: 8,807 ft
This peak is not in the book. Published November 2023
Peak 8807 is located on a forested, high ridgeline southeast of Yellowjacket Lake. It can be climbed directly from FSR-114 from Frog Meadows to its northwest. Alternatively, Peak 8807 can be climbed in combination with its [higher] neighbor to the southwest (Peak 8962) as I did.
Same as for Peak 8962. This is the second leg of a 2-peak adventure that includes Peak 8962 and Peak 8807. It covers 5.0 miles with 1,830 feet of elevation gain round trip.
Southwest Ridge, Class 2
From the 8,500-foot connecting saddle, scramble northeast then east then north to the small summit of Peak 8807. The summit is a collection of large boulders and a sagebrush bush. It is open and airy. The terrain on the southwest ridge is mostly forested with a gravel base. There is not too much deadfall but there are some ridge pines to skirt.
