A bit of a round about route. I went south from Kendall Peak's summit to the top of the scree gully I ascended, then southeast on the ridge. The ridge looks like it will continuously cliff out but it's all Class 2 to the saddle with Point 13,409 (which is nicknamed "Spencer Peak", not to be confused with Spencer Peak near Grand Turk, and is actually 13,420' according to Lists of John). From the saddle I dropped north onto a trail that crosses 13,409's north face. This trail is in pretty bad disrepair and is only a foot or so wide most of the way, and loose the entire way. Once it dumps out on the northeast side of 13,409 either go over 13,409 or skirt around it then go up easy grass slopes to the summit of "Mountaineer Peak".
