Prominence: 1,782

Climbing information for Glassford Peak is found on pages 236 and 237.


Glassford Peak, is the 42nd highest Idaho summit. While it is briefly visible from ID-75 it’s summit is only reached after a long approach hike from the East Fork Salmon River or a rugged ridge walk from the west. The options are detailed in the book. The route that I describe in the book as utilizing the peak’s west ridge should in fact have been identified as the “southwest” ridge.

Make sure you also climb South Glassford Peak on the same day.
