Peak 8745 (Goat Creek Peak)

Elevation: 8,745 ft
Prominence: 414

This peak is not in the book.


Goat Creek Peak, as you might expect, is located above a drainage named Goat Creek. More specifically, this Goat Creek flows westward off a high ridge known as the Log Mountain/Deadwood Divide (page 117 in the book). Even more to the point, the peak is located on the section of the divide bordering the eastern side of the South Fork Salmon River between Warm Lake and the junction of the South Fork and the East Fork South Fork Salmon River. Goat Creek Peak sits on the divide’s crest roughly 2.0 miles south, southwest of Log Mountain.

This summit is somewhat isolated from roads and trails. Ascending the peak from the South Fork will Involve over 5,000 feet of elevation gain. Climbing the peak from the Log Mountain area will be the shortest access but will involve a lot of crosscountry travel.

John Platt and John Fadgen climbed the peak on April 15, 2017 from the South Fork. Their trip reports are linked below.
