Peak 9631 (Peanut Peak)

Elevation: 9,631 ft

This peak is not in the book.


Climb this peak via its Class 2 southwest ridge which is accessed from the Hyndman Creek Road (B)(2)(b). I climbed the peak from the northeast while on a backcountry patrol for the Forest Service in 1978. The southwest ridge is by far the shortest route. The view to the main Pioneer crest is more than worth the effort.
