The Climb

From the 8,260-foot connecting saddle with Peak 8563, scramble south up the easy ridge as the forest quickly changes from live to completely charred. The terrain is a mix of snags, not much deadfall, and underlying loose talus/scree. High up, reach open terrain and a boulder/talus slope. Scramble up the rocky slope to reach the rocky, ridgeline summit of Peak 9351. The high point is at the head of a shoulder that heads east-northeast. It has a summit cairn. The ridge crest soon becomes forested as it heads southeast with two [lower] rocky ridge points visible from the summit to its southeast.
