The Climb

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 3 peaks to return to Antelope Pass. Sorry.
