This peak is not in the book.
Peak 10356 is one of 4 ranked Boulder Mountains peaks surrounding Little Fall Creek. This peak can be climbed from most directions. You should be able to find a Class 2 route, no matter which way you approach the peak. The other 3 peaks are Peak 10340, Peak 10350 and Peak 10300. Additionally, you can traverse to Peak 10102 from this peak.
Little Fall Creek provides good access via a mining road that climbs up to 9,200 feet. In June 2015, the road was blocked by two large fallen trees just above the second creek crossing. Most high-clearance vehicles (driven carefully) can make it to the first creek crossing. A 4WD will be necessary above this creek crossing and even many 4WDs will have difficulty crossing a large step on the talus slope above the first creek crossing. Thankfully, the road makes an excellent hiking trail. USGS Meridian Peak
Traverse from Peak 10340, Class 2
The traverse from Peak 10340 has a few obstacles below the summit. These obstacles can be skirted by scrambling through loose talus or climbed directly over some rocky outcrops (Class 3). From the summit of Peak 10340, follow the connecting ridge north to the saddle then climb up the South Ridge. This saddle can also be reached from the end of Fall Creek Road via game trails without too much difficulty.
