Elevation: 8,258 ft
Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 87 of the book.
The information in the guidebook is correct, so I will only elaborate in a bit more detail. It’s a nice walk to Saddle Mountain, an unique experience since you start from Twin Lakes, reached by the only road that goes all the way to the state line in the Bitterroots: Lost Horse Road. The ridgelines leading to Saddle Mountain from Wahoo Pass are beautiful and open, with trees interspersed with open granite slabs.
Saddle Mountain has 2 summits. The [lower] East Summit has some Class 3 pitches along its South Ridge and some nice granite exposures. Going between the 2 summits, the ridge is too sharp to traverse all the way, so descend into the basin to the south before climbing either summit. The view from Saddle Mountain is breathtaking. No sign of civilization anywhere, just the vast expanse of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. USGS Saddle Mountain
