Rick Baugher’s trip report follows:

For quite awhile, I assumed that station “Dalam” (7,005 feet) overlooking Malad City was the highest peak of the Malad Range in Idaho. Dalam, by the way, is a cute surveyor spelling of Malad backwards. Subsequent investigation showed another ranked Idaho Malad peak was higher. On March, 28, 2012, I drove up Dry Canyon on the east side of the range. Parked at first signs of deep mud (5,150 feet). Motorcycled to my intended start spot along road at 6,000 feet. Hike up the SSW Ridge. Steep incline but good tread on soft ground to “Idaho Malad Range High Peak” (7,047 feet). On mostly snow-free summit with lots of deer and sheep droppings. Noted sheepherder cairn and a late 1960’s Hires root beer can. An agreeable 1.5-hour hike. USGS Weston Canyon
