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


Frenchman Peak and North Frenchman Peak (9,139 feet) are located at the southern end of the Sawtooth Range on the west side of Frenchman Creek. The peaks are the two highest points on a scenic, mostly tree-covered North/South Ridge that can be easily accessed from ID-75. John Platt and Dave Pahlas made a strenuous 9.0-mile round trip snowshoe ascent of both peaks on January 1, 2016. Their climb gained 3,000 feet of elevation along the way.

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