Northeast Ridge, Class 2

Date of Climb: August 23, 2019

Access

Same as for the South Ridge of Bald Mountain. This climb is the next leg of a ridge traverse from Bald Mountain to Peak 9125 to Peak 9002.

The Climb

From the 8,640-foot connecting saddle with Bald Mountain, follow an elk trail on the R/W side of the ridge crest to make your way SW up this easy ridge. The ridge terrain is firm and has scattered pines. The summit of Peak 9125 is a rocky ridge crest. There is a small cairn on top.

Southwest Ridge (Descent), Class 2

Access

Same as for the Northeast Ridge Route

The Descent

From the summit, descent SW down the ridge crest. There are a few easy cliff bands to skirt or down-climb. There is much more rock on this ridge section than on any of the ridge sections preceding this one so far on this multi-peak climb. You will find an elk trail to expedite the descent down the Southwest Ridge. You will quickly reach a small saddle at 8,580 feet. This saddle connects Peak 9125 to Peak 9002, another ranked summit and the next objective in today’s journey.
