Peak 9755 is a rocky, pyramidal summit that sits southwest of Point 9765 and the Continental Divide. It is best climbed in combination with nearby Peak 9766. Unlike Peak 9766 which is on the ID/MT border (on the Continental Divide), Peak 9755 is entirely in the State of Idaho. Its northeast ridge is a delightful Class 3 scramble. USGS Goldstone Pass
Same as for Peak 9766. This is the final leg of a two-peak journey that begins just above Goldstone Pass.
Northeast Ridge, Class 3
From the 9,260-foot connecting saddle with Peak 9766, begin scrambling southwest up the ridge. Move to the right/west to skirt a large buttress and then skirt the right/west side of a subsequent ridge tower. Move back onto the ridge crest and climb the ridge rock to the summit. Higher up, hop across the flat tops of the ridge towers. Given the very loose talus/scree on the steep sides of the ridge crest, avoid leaving the ridge crest whenever possible on this climb. The summit area has a nice cairn and great views.
