Elevation: 8,150 ft
This peak is not in the book. Updated May 2018.
Peak 8150 is located east of Moore, Idaho, on the north end of a moderate ridge that runs south from its summit to Arco Peak and ends just east of Arco, Idaho. The ridge parallels US Highway 93.
Access the peak from the King Peak Launch Site Road. [(B)(17)] Follow the road until it switchbacks back to the north. From this point, keep right and continue on to Beaverland Pass. From the pass, a 4WD road leads up toward the summit. In fact, the road leads almost to the summit. Park at least 1,000 feet below the summit and enjoy the nice walk.
You can easily climb Peak 8082 from the summit of this peak by hiking 1.0 miles to the south and crossing the connecting saddle.
Steve and Margo Mandella climbed these peaks in May 2018. Because of a heavy rain event earlier that winter, the roads were severely washed out in places and they were not able to drive all the way to Beaverhead Pass with their high clearance 4WD. Thus, they accessed the peak from Beaverhead Pass Road on the northeast side between the two mountains. See their track below for their loop route.
Their trip stats for the loop route: 4.93 miles and 1,906 feet gained.
