This peak is not in the book.
The sleeping Deer Mountain Road provides high access to many Eastern Salmon River Mountains peaks. (See the Sleeping Deer Mountain page for information on the road.)
A fire lookout was placed on the summit in 1935 and was still occasionally used was into the 1960’s. The lookout was reportedly burned by a vandals in 1993. As you might expext as a former fire lookout site the views are massive. The access road crosses the peak’s southern slopes at 8,600 feet and the old unmaintained road to the lookout makes an ascent to the summit an easy Class 1 walk. This is an easy prize for peakbaggers, if you survive the drive. USGS Sheldon Peak
