Peak 6550 is the second-highest peak in the Picabo Hills southwest of Picabo, Idaho. This is the second leg of a 2-peak journey that includes Picabo Hills (6,583 feet) and Peak 6550. An easy ridge traverse (with help from an old 2-track road) connects the two peaks. This is the only route that offers public access to Peak 6550. USGS Gannett
Same as for Picabo Hills High Point (6,583 feet).
South Ridge, Class 2
From the 6,230-foot connecting saddle with the Picabo Hills High Point (6,583 feet), follow an old 2-track road to its end at the northeast hump of the Point 6454 complex. From there, descend north on a ridge to a saddle (6,290 feet) on a mix of talus/scree and short scrub. From the saddle, climb north up the ridge in a mix of scree and short scrub to the cairned summit of Peak 6550.
