Peak 5303

Elevation: 5,303 ft
Prominence: 403

This peak is not in the book. Also see the Owyhee Mountains Peaks List for all of the peaks in this range.


Peak 5303 sits in the Western Owyhee Mountains just east of US-95 and north of Flattop Butte. Like most peaks in this area, it can be climbed from almost any direction. I climbed it from the east and Chipmunk Road. This area burned in 2015 and all the brush is gone. There are great views from the summit. Chipmunk Road is a good gravel road that leaves US-95 at Milepost 7 and runs southeast to McBride Creek on the east side of the peak. USGS Piute Butte
