Peak 5915 is at the western end of the Soldier Mountains. The peak is located on an isolated parcel of Boise National Forest land just west of the paved Featherville Road.

Access

From ID-20 follow the Featherville Road north for a roughly 1.25 miles to the Castle Rock Road. (See page 155 for additional access information.) Turn left or west and drive a short distance until you see a gate in the fence on your right. Park here. The gate is chained shut. However, if you look closely at the fence to the east of the gate, you will notice that the two middle wires are clipped to the pole using a three staple technique that will allow you to pull one staple and pull the wire away from the fence. Loosen the two middle wires stretch them apart and cross through the fence. Put the wire back as you found it and you are ready to climb the peak.

South Slopes/East Face, Class 3

The route to the summit heads north where open, steep slopes climb up to the summit block. I recommend taking the south ridge which ends on the east side of the summit block. The summit block on this side is a short, easy Class 3 scramble of roughly 25 feet. This route climbs 0.9 miles and gains 423 feet.
