Elevation: 8,340 ft
This peak is not in the book.
Peak 8340 is in a remote, rugged area of the Boise Mountain Range in the Boise National Forest. However, the peak is easily accessed via FS-312, the long winding road that leads to the upper reaches of the North Fork Boise River. USGS Tyee Mountain
To access the peak by road via the Graham GS Road [(B)(2.1)], from Boise take ID-21 for 55 miles to the turn for FS-384 at the signed Edna Creek CG turn. Turn onto the excellent FS-384 gravel road and follow it to FS-312 in 4 miles. FS-312 is a good road but not recommended for passenger vehicles. The main intersections are signed for Graham.
Southeast Ridge, Class 2
As the road begins to climb up to the next pass, park at roughly 7,500 feet. From this spot, climb north up to the ridge top on the peak’s east ridge. You will find a descent game trail on the ridge top that follows the road to the summit. My one-way stats: 0.85 miles with 1,004 feet of gain.
