Peak 5571 (Aldape Peak)

Elevation: 5,571 ft
Prominence: 311

This peak is not in the book.

A peakbaggers’ special: close to Boise, close to a road and another peak for your list. The peak is easily reached from Shaw Mountain’s (aka Lucky Peak) summit. It’s about two miles to traverse between the two summits. The entire distance is on roads that are supposedly closed to all but authorized vehicles. The views from the ridge of the valley and the Owyhee Mountains to the south are worth the effort. The route descriptions for Shaw Mountain will get you to within striking distance of this peak.
