Elevation: 10,970 ft
Climbing and access information for this peak is found on pages 309 and 310.
Black And White Peak is one of the tallest 10ers in Idaho and it is Idaho’s 130th tallest peak. The book lists only one route on the seldom climbed summit. Larry Prescott traversed traversed the ridge line from Little Diamond Peak in April 2015. Larry then descended off the peak’s western slope back to his Badger Creek starting point. I will include a few of Larry’s photos and comments below. For all the details on this new route alternative and more great photos see the link below for Larry’s trip report.
Black and White Peak is only 0.8 miles north of Little Diamond Peak and there is one knife edged section that Larry named “Close Shave” and this section raises the difficulty to Class3.
Access information for Badger Creek is found in the book on page 318. Larry provided the following additional information: To get there, drive north from Howe. I am not sure how many miles, [Editor’s note: 23.3 miles north of Howe.] but you will see the impressive mountains on your right and the entrance to Badger Creek Canyon in the distance. Turn off on Badger Creek Rd. This road is not marked, so look for the street signs and mailbox pictured here. Once you turn off to the right, hang another sharp right and drive about 6 miles to the trailhead.
