From ID-21 west of Stanley, turn right/east onto [signed] Stanley Creek Road/FSR-653. At 1.3 miles, go left at a signed junction to stay on FSR-653. At 1.5 miles, reach an unsigned “T” junction. Go left/northwest onto Basin Butte Road/FSR-432. Drive 1.7 miles up Basin Butte Road to a large dispersed campsite at a slight bend in the road. Park here (6,650 feet). GPS coordinates: 44⁰16’55”N, 114⁰58’33”W. This campsite sits at the base of the west face of Peak 7536.
West Face, Class 2
From the dispersed campsite along Basin Butte Road, follow an old 2-track road southeast up the west face of Peak 7536 in open terrain. The old 2-track heads up into the forest and becomes a footpath. Follow the footpath up the forested upper west face (which is somewhat like a shoulder in this area) until it ends. Bushwhack east directly up the face to reach the boulders at the top of the west face. Move right/south for easier boulder scrambling to reach the summit ridge. Once atop the ridge, follow it left/north for a short distance to the rocky high point of Peak 7536. The summit has a decent cairn.
