Access

The Banks/Lowman Highway at its junction with of ID-55. Park in a pullout on the South Side of the highway just east of the junction.

Southwest Ridge, Class 2

I traversed Peak 3668 on the way to Garden Peak. From the parking area, carefully cross ID-17 and climb the steep Southwest Ridge to the summit. The descent off the peak’s Northwest Ridge crosses a surprising number of rocky obstacles and verges on Class 4 climbing. See John Platt’s trip report linked below.
