One of Idaho’s true hidden treasures, Cabin Creek Peak has only one known ascent. It is located NNE of Stanley, Idaho on a ridge line sometimes identified as the Tango Peaks. USGS Knapp Lakes
Paul Bellamy, Dana Hanson and I made the first ascent of the peak on August 8, 1988 via the East Face. This face is cut by 3 gullies. With Paul leading, we climbed the southernmost gully. The route started out to the right of the gully on a small buttress and then moved up and to the left for one and a half pitches. Class 5.3. The rock on this face is fine-grained granite with cracks that took small and mid-sized protection.
