Peak 5954 is located on a ridgeline that separates Silverlead Creek from Little Silverlead Creek in the Beaverhead Mountains. It is most easily reached (on public land) from FST-130/The Lewis and Clark National Recreation Trail and its southwest ridge. This area is a mix of private and public land, so be careful.

Same as for Peak 5812. This is the second leg of a 2-peak adventure that includes Peak 5812 and Peak 5954. It covers 7.3 miles with 3,500 feet of elevation gain round trip.

The Climb

From 5,220-foot connecting saddle with Peak 5812, scramble east-northeast up a ridge of mostly field grass to a bend in the ridge on a ridge hump. Head left/northeast and descend 85 vertical feet to a minor saddle. From the saddle, continue northeast then north in open field grass (easy) to reach the elusive summit hump of Peak 5954. I rebuilt the small, old summit cairn into a much larger one. Return back to the 5,220-foot connecting saddle then follow FST-130 north and then west back to the Trail Gulch Trailhead and your parked vehicle.
