Access

To reach this peak utilize the Warm Lake/Landmark/Stanley Road, FS-22/579 which runs across the Salmon River Mountains between ID-55 and ID-21 to reach Landmark. [(C)(1) page 138] The town of Landmark is no longer in existence but there is a large airstrip just north of the road. Leave Landmark on FS-477, the Burnt Log Road. [(C)(1.4) page 140] Follow the Burnt Log Road north for just over 4.0 miles to the signed junction for the Artillery Dome Road, FS-477E (not discussed in the book). Turn right and follow this 4WD road east to Peak 8681.

South Ridge, Class 2

This peak can easily be climbed through open forest from anywhere along the Artillery Dome Road. The south ridge is mostly open and the suggested route. Simply park in the saddle at the base of the ridge and walk to the summit.

My GPS track. This route was just over a mile round trip and gained less than 300 feet.
