Peak 9345 (Frenchman Peak)

Elevation: 9,345 ft
Prominence: 325

This peak and North Frenchman peak which is also discussed herein are not in the book.

Frenchman Peak and North Frenchman Peak, 9139, are located at the southern end of  the Sawtooth Range on the west side of Frechman Creek. The peaks are the two highest points on a scenic, mostly tree covered north-south ridge line that can be easily accessed from Idaho-75. John Platt and Dave Pahlas made a strenuous 9.0 mile round trip snowshoe ascents of both peaks on January 1, 2016. Their climb gained 3,000 feet along the way. Use the links below to their trip reports for details on their ascent. USGS Frenchman Creek.

While not the most rugged Sawtooth Peaks, it is obvious that the good winter access and the view from the top provide the incentive to climb these two peaks.
