From its genesis at East Ridge Drive in Hailey, drive northeast up [signed] Quigley Road. At 6.1 miles, reach an unsigned road junction where Quigley Road turns right/east and begins a rugged climb to a 7,095-foot saddle. Park at this junction (6,020 feet).

The Climb

From the road junction, hike north then northwest up the 2-track road (only suitable for ATVs/MCs after the first ¼ mile) for about 1.2 miles to the 6,500-foot level and a side gully to the left/west. Leave the road and bushwhack southwest up a steep, forested shoulder that follows the south side of the aforementioned gully. High up, the shoulder reaches tree line and becomes a mix of shale, rocky outcrops, and sagebrush/grass. It bends left/south.

Just below the saddle at the head of the gully, leave the shoulder and angle diagonally right/west through sagebrush to reach the ridge saddle at 7,100 feet. From the saddle, scramble west up an easy face of scrub with a final jog to the right/north to reach the small, rocky summit of Peak 7308. The summit has a modest cairn. There is no signage or fencing to prohibit entry onto the private land on the west side of the 2-track road, on the summit ridge, and on the summit itself.
