Elevation: 3,260 ft
This Owyhee Mountain Peak is not in the book. Published October 2018.
See the Owyhee Mountains Peaks List for all of the peaks in this range.
Peak 3260 is located northeast of Wilson Peak and just west of the impressive Reynolds Creek canyon. Due to its low elevation this peak is best climbed in early Spring, late Fall or the Winter. The view into the Reynolds Creek canyon from the summit alone is worth the effort.
See the Wilson Creek access page. Follow the paved Wilson Creek Road toward the highway. Just before you reach a giant feedlot, BLM 37154 leaves the road north of a fence line. Turn east and follow this road, which requires a 4WD, toward the peak. There are several signed junctions until you reach the base of the peak at roughly 2,750 feet.
Northwest Gully, Class 2
Peak 3260 can be easily climbed from the road via numerous lines. The northwest gully shown on the map below was the most direct. The entire mountain is covered by thick, tall grass. I would advise you to avoid the peak during fire season.
