Peak 6105 is a pyramidal hump that towers over the confluence of Allan Creek, Hughes Creek, and the West Fork Hughes Creek in the Bitterroot Mountains. It is most easily reached via FSR-088 which skirts the base of the west ridge. A short scramble leads to the top. USGS Allan Mountain

The Climb

From the small saddle, bushwhack steeply east up through thick brush, willows, deadfall, and snags to reach the semi-open summit area. The high point is to the left/north on an obvious hump as the USGS topo map indicates. There was no cairn on top so I built a decent one on the high point. The summit offers decent views of the surrounding area.
