Elevation: 6,440 ft
This peak is not in the book.
Peak 5440 is located east of Slide Gulch. This peak offers a nice early season destination. The peak’s upper slopes are mostly treeless and easy to climb.
Access the peak by taking the Middle Fork Boise River to the Slide Gulch Road. [Access [(C)(1) on page 154.] Follow the Slide Gulch Road southeast to the peak’s southern slopes. The summit is a Class 2 climb from any point along this stretch of road. Some lines will be brushier than others.
I climbed the peak by traversing over from Peak 6300 via the connecting ridge line. We followed game trails much of the way. There are brushy spots along the way. We descended the south ridge.
