Access

A dirt road accessible from ID-46 circles the butte on three sides. Leave the highway on its northeast side. Follow the dirt road to a barrow pit on its west side.

West Slopes, Class 2

Climb the peak via its western slopes. There is a two track that scars the western slopes. You can climb it or the slopes just to the north. Aim for a point north of the distinctive rocky point. Move onto the north slope just before the top and then go straight up to the summit platform. From this point walk due east to the highest point where there is a cairn and a wooden cross.
