Krall Mountain

Elevation: 5,318 ft
Prominence: 938

This Boise Mountain peak is not in the book.


Krall Mountain is a good destination for the month of May before summer temperatures hit. The peak is located north northwest of Prairie, Idaho. The peak was burned over by a massive forest fire in the early 1990s and is mostly treeless. Since it has nearly a thousand feet of prominence it is a great place to view the surrounding country.

Access

Access the east side of the peak from FS-113. This road runs between Prairie and the Middle Fork Boise River. The road is usually well maintained in the summer and useable by passenger vehicles after it has been graded. USGS Long Gulch

East Ridge (Class 2)

Climb the peak via its east ridge which is accessed from FS-113 where the road crosses a pass between Rattlesnake Creek and Long Gulch. The ridge is broad at first but narrows down as you approach the summit.
