Peak 9781 is the final summit of a four-peak adventure that begins at Antelope Pass. This long ridge climb/traverse includes Peak 9579, Lupine Mountain (9,554 feet), Peak 9699, and Peak 9781. Do not attempt this ridge traverse on a windy day. USGS Copper Basin Knob
Same as for Peak 9579. This is the final leg of a four-peak journey that begins at Antelope Pass.
South Ridge, Class 2
From the 9,380-foot connecting saddle with Peak 9699, follow the ridge north using a 2-track road initially. The road ends in a pine forest. The road is weak and is only a grassy opening in most areas. Finish off Peak 9781 with a rocky scramble north to the top. The summit is a rocky ridge crest and has a decent summit cairn. This concludes the fourth and final leg of today’s 4-peak adventure. Unfortunately, you must now re-climb the first three peaks to return to Antelope Pass. Sorry.
