Peak 7392 is a small scrub hump that towers over the hamlet of Obsidian on ID-75 south of Stanley. It is easily climbed from the Williams Creek Trailhead just north of Obsidian. This area is a mix of private and public land, so be careful. This climb is entirely on BLM land. USGS Obsidian

From ID-75 south of Stanley, turn right/east into the [signed] Williams Creek trailhead parking area which is located 0.1 miles north of the [signed] hamlet of Obsidian. Park here (6,630 feet).

The Climb

From the large trailhead parking area, bushwhack east from the Williams Creek trailhead up a steep, fairly thick sagebrush slope (more akin to a shoulder initially) to reach a flat bench. Continue east up the sagebrush face, staying to the right/south of a dry gully. Reach some scattered pines high up and continue up to the high point, which is hard to discern on the flat summit ridge. I walked north for about 75 yards to an open area of the ridge, seeking to find a higher point but it measured of equal altitude to my entry point. Based on the USGS topo map, the southern of the two points is probably the official high point of Peak 7392. The northern point is close to a dropoff north to a saddle and the [lower] forested north summit hump on the USGS topo map. There wass no summit cairn on the flat, sagebrush summit plateau, so I built a small one.
