Liberty Mountain is located due east of ID-28 at Gilmore Summit and east of Meadow Lake. Based on my observations, I believe that the peak can be climbed via its west face from Meadow Lake. Larry Prescott climbed the peak from the east. Larry’s East Face Route is summarized here and a link to his site is provided below. Rick Baugher’s Southeast Ridge Route is also linked below.

East Face

Larry accessed the east face via a 4WD road that is found just north of Silver Moon Gulch. This road ends approximately a mile from the summit. Larry reported:

“The path to the east face of Liberty Mountain follows a well-defined creek bed. The going was easy without much brush. Soon the forest gave way to an open slope of rocks leading to the ridge of the mountain. I followed the ridge straight to the summit.”

Larry continues:

“The upper part of the steep ridge was a bit difficult. Deep snow made for slow going. I inched my way to the top, carefully crossed solid ice to open rocks, and then made for the summit.”

Larry’s Class 3 route ascends 1,800 feet of elevation in roughly 1.25 miles.
