From ID-78, go east on Silver City Road [(A)(2) on Page 346] and park at the large parking area on the west side of the road at 10.8 miles. This is in Half Moon Gulch. There are no good parking spots for this peak on the Silver City Road south of Half Moon Gulch.

Southwest Ridge, Class 2

From our parking area, we hiked up the road about 1,200 feet to bypass private property. Leave the road and climb the steep southwest ridge to the summit. I left a summit register.
