Climbing information for this peak is found on page 310.


Yet another Bald Mountain. This lesser Lemhi Range summit sits east of the main crest. Although the peak just barely tops 9,000 feet, getting to its summit requires over 3,600 feet of elevation gain.

Southest Ridge, Class 2

Larry Prescott climbed this route in May of 2016 with his son Ben. They took the Eightmile Canyon Road in from ID-28. Larry reports, “The road was in great condition all the way to the southeast ridge of Bald Mountain. This ridge extends northwest from the road to an upper gentle slope leading west to the summit. This line undulates up and down till meeting the westward slope. In retrospect, this route was surely not the fastest or easiest. Yet, it was a pleasant hike with no real difficulty.”
