Peak 9326 is a seldom-climbed peak that is tucked in behind, and to the north of, Bonanza Peak (9,311 feet). Indeed, it is a ranked hump on the northwest ridge of Bonanza Peak. Peak 9326 is most easily climbed in combination with Bonanza Peak. The ridge traverse between the peaks is relatively straightforward. USGS Sunbeam

Same as for Bonanza Peak. This is the second leg of a 2-peak adventure that includes Bonanza Peak and Peak 9326.

The Climb

From the forested 8,900-foot connecting saddle with Bonanza Peak, scramble northwest in semi-open terrain with some ridge pines and a section of ridge rock early on (loose shale). Work up through the ridge pines, talus/scree, and scrub to reach the gentle but rocky summit of Peak 9326. There was nothing on the summit boulder so I built a decent cairn. Return to Bonanza Peak. Descend its west ridge back to the jeep road that is close to Yankee Fork Road. Follow the jeep road for a short distance west down to Yankee Fork Road and your parked vehicle.
