From Malta, Idaho, drive south on Highway 81 for 6.0 miles. Turn west onto the signed 2160 S. Kane Springs Road. The road is a good county maintained gravel road until it turns northwest toward a ranch. Turn left on the two track that leaves the main road at this turn. Follow this road south, crossing Kane Creek and then continue south past the saddle on the western end of Sheep Mountain. The road crosses another drainage and quickly reaches a junction with a road that runs west to the base of Peak 7116. Take this road. This road is a two track which ends at an old fence enclosure. Park here. High clearance vehicle recommended. See the map below.
East Face, Class 2
The peak’s east face is composed of several grass and sagebrush covered ribs and gullies. From the end of the road, a faint and illegal ATV trail continues toward the summit for a short distance. Follow this track to its end and then continue to ascend on whatever line looks best to you. The summit is 1.0 miles and 1,100 feet of elevation gain above the parking area.
