Elevation: 9,165 ft
Prominence: 745

This peak is not the book.


This unnamed Peak is the 3rd highest summit in the Trinity Mountains subrange. The peak can be climbed from almost any direction but based on access considerations, I sugget the route whick leaves the road that leads to the Trinity Mountain fire lookout at the 9200 foot contour. From this point, you can traverse the ridge to the summit and climb Peak 9140 in the process. I recommend staying close to the ridge top and avoiding obstacles by traversing the west side of the ridge when necessary to reach the summit of Peak 9140. From Peak 9140, you can descend and side hill past the next intervening high point into the saddle on the peak’s north side. Climb the north ridge from this point. This route is roughly 10.0 miles round trip with 3,300 of gain when leaving from the gate closing the Trinity Mountain lookout road. Add another 250 feet in to climb to the top of Trinity Mountain (you cannot pass,it up when you are so close) and you will find this a strenuous outing.
