This peak is located due south of Cloochman Saddle and Squaw Point. Although a relatively minor peak there are fantastic views of the Lick Creek subrange peaks to the east and big peaks like Bruin Mountain to the south.

Cloochman Saddle/North Slopes, Class 2

This peak is easily approached from Cloochman Saddle to the south. The Saddle is reached from the Warren Wagon Road, FH-21 [(B)(2) page 135] and FS-492. Follow the Warren Wagon Road north from ID-55 for almost 23.0 miles. The turn for FS-492 is on the left just 150 feet before the pass. FS-492 leads to Cloochman Saddle in 3.0 miles. The road receives occasional maintenance and should he passable for passenger cars when dry. There are a few camping spots at the roads end.

From the saddle climb the peak’s grass and downfall covered northern slopes to the summit. My GPS recorded 0.4 miles with 350 feet of elevation gain to the summit.
