Just north of point 9250 is a series of large, coarse grained, open book formations. These open to the west and are approximately north-northwest of Point 9250 by 0.25 miles.These do not have an elevation tag on the NatGeo topo but are defintely of interest to climbers.
Neither of these formations are found in the Hubbel Guide, nor can I find them mentioned on Mountain Project or SuperTopo. There is evidence of climbing on Point 9250 in the form of slings and bolts. If anyone knows anything more about these two formations, please let me know, and I will update this area.
Location, according to Google Maps:
Point 9250: 39.220236, -105.399813.
Open Book formation: 39.223221, -105.402501.
The Open Books are 0.25 miles north-northwest of this, further from the trail. Approach Point 9250, then move right (north) along the base. Aim to cross the lowlands to the north, and follow the path of least resistance to the large, open books.
I have not approached this from the Wigwam Creek trailhead, but it is theoretically a similar distance.
