From ID-77 in Elba, turn right/west onto Elba Road/1950S Road (which becomes FSR-548) and drive 3.9 miles to an unsigned road junction. Park in a roadside pullout (with a picnic table) 0.1 miles below this junction. The elevation at this roadside pullout is 5,635 feet. You may actually be able to drive this gated 2-track road to near the summit. A 4WD is recommended.

North Ridge, Class 1

The Climb

From the road junction, cross a cattle gate/fence and follow the 2-track road all the way to just below the summit. Leave the road and hike right/south up an old 2-track to reach the cairned summit. Ignore any side roads that you encounter. There is another cattle gate on the road that you must cross about midway up the ridge.
