Peak 9140

Elevation: 9,140 ft
Prominence: 480

This peak is not in the book.


Peak 9140 sits southeast of Trinity Mountain and Big Rainbow Lake. The peak has two summits of almost equal height. The East Summit is allegedly 5 feet higher than the West Summit according to the USGS topo map. But it’s hard to tell which summit is higher. Climb the peak from Trinity Mountain Road. Leave the road at the 9,200-foot contour, drop into the saddle at 8,600 feet and work your way over via the connecting ridge. You can continue from its summit to Peak 9165 via the connecting ridge.
