Peak 10681

Elevation: 10,681 ft
Prominence: 461

This peak is not in the book.


Peak 10,681 is located on the main Lemhi Range crest between Midway Mountain to the south and The Clapper to the north. Foss Mountain is west of Peak 10,681.

I climbed the peak in 1981 via the connecting ridge from Foss Mountain. More recently, Larry Prescott climbed the peak on an epic 13-mile, 7,300-foot elevation gain, 6-peak day, which saw him traverse the peak from Midway Mountain to the south all the way to Foss. This route is detailed in his trip report: Lemhi Enchainment, Little Sister to Foss Mountain.

Class 2 via Larry’s route.

The ridge from Foss to Peak 10,681 involves some bushwacking but is straightforward. Larry’s trip report demonstrates that the ridge between Miday Mountain and Peak 10,681 is also a Class 2 walk up with a couple of obstacles to bypass along the way.
