The Climb

From the 8,580-foot connecting saddle with Spring Hill, scramble north then northeast up the ridge on a combination of scrub and loose scree/gravel. The summit is at the southwest end of the summit plateau/ridge crest. The rocky high point has no summit cairn. From the summit, return southwest down the ridge then bend right/west and follow a spur that leads down to a saddle (and 2-track road) at 8,500 feet. This is the connecting saddle with Peak 8937 and concludes the third leg of today’s 4-peak journey. Peak 8937 is up next.
