Access

Poison Gulch is accessed from Poison Creek Cutoff Road which, in turn, is accessed from Mud Flat Road. From the junction of ID-167/ID-78 in Grand View, drive south for 2.1 miles and then turn right onto [paved] Mud Flat Road. Follow Mud Flat Road south and then southwest for 15.9 miles to the signed junction for the Poison Creek Cutoff Road. Turn right and follow this well-maintained gravel road south for 2.6 miles. Turn left at this point onto a 2-track 4WD road. This rough road runs west/southwest to Poison Gulch. At roughly three miles, it passes through a fence line just west of Peak 4545.

West Face, Class 2-3

The west face is easily followed to the ragged summit nipple. There are several gullies filled with loose Class 3 rock that can be followed to the summit. The easier and safer approach is to work around the south side of the cliffs and ascend the final 50 feet on the sagebrush-covered slopes.
