Gilman Butte is a ranked summit just E of [unranked] Rocky Butte. It is a rocky outcrop, not a typical flat-topped butte. Gilman Butte is located on the south side of Croy Creek Road and Gilman Flat, due west of Bellevue, ID. It is a fun scramble from a saddle to its west. There is a lot of private land in this area, so consult the BLM Fairfield map before tackling this climb. Beware of rattlesnakes and copperheads in this area. USGS Bellevue
West Face, Class 2
Date of Climb: June 6, 2019
Same as for the West Face of Rocky Butte. This climb is the next leg of a traverse from Rocky Butte to Gilman Butte and back.
From the connecting saddle with Rocky Butte, scramble E up a sagebrush slope to the rocky summit. There is a nice cairn on top and a magnificent view of the ranches in Gilman Flat.
