This peak is part of the Lone Pine Peak massive. It is located south of that peak. I would wager that most ascents of this peak are made as an adjunct to climbing the higher Lone Pine Peak. This is impart due to the best access for Lone Pine Peak ends on the southern slopes of this peak. USGS Lone Pine Peak

Access

The Spar Canyon Road is the primary access for the Northern Boulder Mountain peaks. [(D)(1) page 243]  The Spar Canyon Road can be accessed from US-93 in the east or the East Fork Salmon River Road in the west. The road is maintained except during the winter. It is subject to occasional flash floods and can be difficult to drive when wet. All of the side roads departing from the Spar Canyon Road require high clearance vehicles and 4WDs are recommended.

To reach the 4WD road that leads to Peak 7794 from US-93 follow the Spar Canyon Road west for 7.0 miles to the junction for the Bradshaw Basin Road. To reach this junction from the west follow the East Fork Salmon River Road south from ID-75 for 4.1 miles, turn left/east and follow the Spar Canyon Road east for 7.7 miles. Follow the Bradshaw Basin Road north for 0.9 miles. Turn right onto the road that heads northeast. The 4WD/ATV road that climbs from the Bradshaw Basin Road to the south side of Peak 9391 is not for the faint of heart. I advise stopping at the point shown on the map below. [(D)(1) Page 243] Rather than driving to the track’s end, find a safe place to park and start your ascent at that point.

South Slopes, Class 2

From your parking spot, hike up the track to the crest south of the summit. Hike up the south slopes until you can turn due east to reach the summit,
