This peak is the officially named Gilmore Peak. When I climbed this peak on September 25, 2000 in winter-like conditions, I thought the next point east might be higher. I climbed it again in the Summer of 2013 and, once again, thought the east summit was higher. Based on LiDAR measurements, the peak’s east summit (Gilmore East) IS higher. The [lower] west summit is still an enjoyable climb and is probably the easiest way to reach Gilmore East. USGS Gilmore

Primary access is from ID-28 at the small hamlet of Gilmore. From Gilmore, a good gravel road leads to Meadow Lake where there is a Forest Service Campground [(A)(6)(a) on Page 314].

Northwest Ridge, Class 2

The Forest Service trail from Meadow Lake to the ridgeline northwest of the peak was in good shape in 2013. Once at the saddle, a good game trail follows the west side of the ridge almost to the named west summit of the Gilmore Peak massif.
