Tango Peaks

The Tango Peaks are a north south ridge found in the southeast corner of the eastern Salmon River Mountains north northeast of Stanley, Idaho.

Figuring out the best access will be the crux of the climb. You could always climb it from the summit of North Twin but then you would have to … Continue reading

Peak 9505

This peak is not in the book. This unnamed Salmon River Peak sits west of Peak 9446 which in turn sits west of Woodtick Summit. The most efficient way to climb this peak appears to follow the ridge from Woodtick Summit over Peak 9446 and climb the peak from the adjoining saddle. I have only viewed the route from a distance … Continue reading
