Peak 9037

Elevation: 9,037 ft
Prominence: 617

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 149 of the book.


Peak 9037 sits west of Fiddlers Perch and Trinity Mountain. It is easily climbed from almost any line, since the Trinity Mountain Road [(E)(2.2)(c) on Page 155] crosses its South and East Slopes at one point only 600 vertical feet below the summit. I scrambled up the peak’s East Ridge from the road, which was a short 600-foot, 0.35- mile hike.

I also recommend climbing the peak from the saddle between it and Peak 8554. This saddle can be reached via a trail that leaves Trinity Mountain Road roughly 1.0 mile below the East Ridge. In 2014, the trailhead was not signed but it’s easy to find. It leaves the road at a sharp switchback by a big tree and is shown on both the USGS quadrangle and the Boise National Forest Map. The saddle is 0.5 miles away. USGS Trinity Mountain

There is a nice register on the summit in a cookie tin. Not surprisingly there were several entries in 2012 from fire fighters who struggled that year to extinguish the fire that burned over large parts of the Trinity Mountain region that year.

The view from the summit is vast. This shot shows the Trinity Mountain ridge running off to the north. To the south you can see the deep canyon of the South Fork Boise River. To the north the view includes the Middle Fork Boise River drainage. The Sawtooth Mountains are to the north east and, of course, ragged Trinity Peak is just to the east.
