Peak 6407 is located a few miles west of Pleasantview, ID on the north side of ID-38. It is a bump on the long east ridge of MLD AZ Benchmark (7,169 feet). The south ridge is a fun scramble from ID-38. This area is a mix of private ranch land and BLM land, so be careful. This climb is entirely on BLM land. USGS Ireland Springs
Park on an [unsigned] short BLM spur road that is located on the north side of ID-38 exactly 2.7 miles east of Holbrook Summit and 2.5 miles west of North 5400W at the west end of Pleasantview. Park at a cattle fence about 75 yards up from the highway (5,100 feet).
South Ridge, Class 2
From the parking area, jump the cattle fence and hike north through easy field grass then easy scrub (some loose scree and embedded talus) on a gentle upslope. The terrain steepens and the south ridge is now better defined. There is a prominent dry gully to the left/west of the ridge. Scramble up the rounded ridge, weaving around scattered mountain mahogany. Skirt left-ish/northwest past a ridge hump to reach a saddle. From the saddle, continue northwest on open scrub to the summit. The summit of Peak 6407 has a decent cairn and a nice view of nearby Peak 6620 and Stump Canyon.
