Penny Mountain is a small hill that sits just east of the Ketchum Cemetery along ID-75 at the north end of Ketchum. It is on private land (probably City of Ketchum land). There is a footpath coming up both the north ridge and the southeast ridge from Ketchum streets/residences. It certainly seems to be a publicly-accessible hill. USGS Sun Valley
Park at the Ketchum Cemetery on the east side of ID-75 at the north end of Ketchum (5,855 feet).
West Face, Class 2
From the parking area at the Ketchum Cemetery, walk to the north end of the cemetery and bushwhack north up onto a ridge. Follow the ridge briefly as it heads east then bushwhack southeast up through steep, thick sagebrush to the [false] west summit. From the west summit hump, descend east 35 feet to a saddle in easier sagebrush then climb east to the rocky, true summit of Penny Mountain. The summit offers a magnificent view of Ketchum. There is no summit cairn.
From the summit, descend back to the saddle between the true summit and the west summit. From the saddle, descend a sagebrush-filled dry gully northwest then west to return to the minor ridge at the north end of the cemetery. This descent route is a more direct route up the west face and avoids a climb of the false summit and I recommend it (or one of the aforementioned foot trails on the summit ridge) as a better ascent route than the one that I took.
