Peak 8100 is a forested, ridgeline hump that sits between the Pattee Creek drainage and the East Fork Kenney Creek drainage in the forested foothills of the west side of the Continental Divide northeast of Tendoy, Idaho. It is most easily reached from the Lewis and Clark Backcountry Byway, which climbs from Tendoy all the way to Lemhi Pass. USGS Goldstone Mountain


From ID-28 at Tendoy, drive east on [signed] Tendoy Lane for 0.1 miles to a “T” junction. Go left/north onto the [signed] Lewis and Clark Backcountry Byway/FSR-185 and drive 2.7 miles to a signed junction. Go right/east here to continue on the Byway. This junction is also 1.9 miles south of 17 Mile Lane which goes 0.4 miles west to reach ID-28 north of Tendoy. Drive up the curving switchbacks of the Byway to reach a ridge saddle at 7,060 feet. Park here at just north of 45⁰02’00”N.

Southwest Ridge, Class 1-2

The Climb

From a saddle at 7,060 feet, leave the Lewis and Clark Backcountry Byway and follow an old 2-track shown on the USGS topo map (if it still exists) northeast then north-northeast up the ridge to reach the forested summit area.

South Face, Class 2

The Climb

From the Lewis and Clark Backcountry Byway, bushwhack north from about 7,480 feet up through thick pine forest (not pleasant) directly to the flat summit area. I looked at this route from the Byway and said “absolutely not.” I do not advise it. Stick to the easier, but longer, Southwest Ridge Route.
