This is the southwestern most Soldier Mountains summit and is a long way from the main Soldier Mountains crest. Theoretically this peak can be climbed from any direction. However, the range fence along the road is built in a fashion that makes it difficult to cross over or slide under. Thus, I recommend the route set out below. USGS High Prairie
From the I-84/ID-21 exit drive 31.9 miles on ID-20 to the junction with the FH-61, the Featherville Highway. Turn north and follow the paved road 4.1 miles to its junction with the High Prairie Road. Turn right and follow the High Prairie Road southeast for 0.7 miles. Turn right onto a two track. The road quickly passes through a gate by a corral. Go through the gate and park.
East Slopes, Class 2
From the corral simply head west aiming for the summit ridge just south of the high point. There is a lot of sagebrush but no other obstacles. When the slope steepens you may find a faint game trail to follow. Just below the summit you will encounter a few rocky slabs which can be bypassed on their left side.
