Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 215 of the book.
All of the routes to this peak involve long approach walks. You will run into dirt bikes and ATVs if you go on a weekend, but this is still a great hike. In fact, this peak is on my 25 Favorite Idaho Climbs list. USGS Jumbo Mountain
