Elevation: 10,220 ft
This peak is not in the book. The USGS Gilmore quad shows its elevation as 10,111 feet. However, more recent measurements give Liberty Mountain an elevation of 10,220 feet.
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 northern slopes from Meadow Lake, but the only reported climb I have is by Larry Prescott who climbed the peak from the east. Larry’s East Face Route is summarized here and a link to his site is provided below. USGS Gilmore
Larry accessed the East Face via a 4WD road that is found just north of Silver Moon Gulch. This road ends approximately 1 mile from the summit. Larry reported that,
“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.”
“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 treaded 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.
