Ascent Trip Report

We bagged Peak 9775 from the Matterhorn, and passed through on the way to Sacajawea. The trip down the Matterhorn ridge to 9775 was easy. After we hit Sacajawea, we came back to peak 9775 but traversed about 250 feet below the summit to the beginning of the Hurwal Ridge to the east. FYI, if you are here please go back to the top of 9775 and then down the ridge. What may look relativly easy runs into nightmarishly bad rock with a long tumble down rocks if you misstep. We made it but it could have been an ugly event, and to save 250 feet it was not worth the trade.
