Snowdon Rock is located between Little Payette Lake and Browns Pond. It is just south of Lick Creek/Yellow Pine Road. There is a lot of exposed granite on this peak which you must scramble over to reach the top. This peak is located on State of Idaho Land. John Platt reports: “It’s basically a big granite dome. Excellent views southward to Lake Fork Creek. Slabs and ledges all over the place the invite wandering, but beware of some steep and/or exposed areas. The easiest and safest route is on sort of the Southeast Side.“ See John Platt’s trip report linked below for additional details. USGS Fitsum Summit
Follow Lick Creek/Yellow Pine Road (FH-48) north from McCall past Little Payette Lake. Find a parking spot on the west side of the peak.
Southeast Slopes, Class 2+
This route uses several ramps to overcome the granite walls that you encounter. John relates: “The route I use to access it is to follow what I think is the original Lick Creek Road by going straight at the first switchback. Then head up right/south into a notch between Snowdon Rock and another dome directly west of there.” See John Platt’s trip report linked below for additional details.
