Peak 8498

Elevation: 8,498 ft
Prominence: 518

This peak is not in the book.

Peak 8498 is located in a remote, rugged area of the Boise Mountains, west of Tyee Mountain and the Sawtooth Mountain Range. The peak is easily climbed from 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 via the Graham 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 4.0 miles. FS-312 is a good road but not recommended for passenger vehicles. The main intersections are signed for Graham.

The road crosses a pass between Archie Mountain and Peak 7561, continues to another pass and the junction with the Jackson Peak Road, and then descends into the upper reaches of the Crooked River. The road climbs out of the Crooked River drainage to yet another pass and then crosses the east face of the peak. You can access the summit from either its northeast or southeast ridges.

Northeast Ridge, Class 2

A quick, easy walk up the rodge. My one-way stats: 0.3 miles with 350 of elevation gain.
