Peak 9780 sits on a long north-south ridgeline that separates Blaine County from Camas County. It is probably most easily climbed via a ridge traverse from Baker Lake to its south. Surprisingly, there is no climber’s trail from Baker Lake up to the prominent north-south ridge crest to help in this effort. USGS Baker Peak
South Ridge, Class 2
From the connecting saddle with Peak 9745 (Saddle 9411), follow the ridgeline north in easy scrub and shale to reach the rocky, ridge crest summit hump of Peak 9780. The south summit hump is visually a little higher than the north summit hump. The south summit has a decent cairn atop it.
