This peak, unofficially named Bradshaw Peak, rises precipitously above the Spar Canyon Road in the northern Boulder Mountains. Encompassing nearly a thousand feet of prominence this peak is a great viewpoint for surveying the surrounding terrain.

Access

The Spar Canyon Road is the primary access for the Northern Boulder Mountain peaks. [(D)(1) page 243]  The Spar Canyon Road can be accessed from US-93 in the east or the East Fork Salmon River Road in the west. The road is maintained except during the winter. It is subject to occasional flash floods and can be difficult to drive when wet. All of the side roads departing from the Spar Canyon Road require high clearance vehicles and 4WDs are recommended.

To reach the 4WD road that accesses the route described below from US-93 follow the Spar Canyon Road west for 7.5 miles and turn left on to a two track that heads north up unnamed drainage. To reach this junction from the west follow the East Fork Salmon River Road south from ID-75 for 4.1 miles, turn left/east and follow the Spar Canyon Road east for 7.2 miles. At this point a two track 4WD road heads northwest along to east side of Bradshaw Peak and eventually to a broad saddle on the peak’s north ridge.

Northeast Ridge, Class 2

This route follows the east side of the north ridge first across sagebrush covered slopes and then through forested terrain with widely dispersed trees to the top of the northeast ridge. Follow the ridge southwest to the summit block which can be easily climbed via numerous lines.
