Based on the fact that there are 12 peaks named Sheep Mountain in Idaho, I guess it’s a fair assessment that sheep. are popular in Idaho. (I note that there are also Sheepeater peaks and Sheephorn Peaks as well as other derivatives incorporating the word sheep in the name.) This Lemhi Range Sheep Mountain is the second highest Idaho Sheep Mountain, trailing only a Sheep Mountain in the Boulder Mountains.
With a 4WD and good driving skills, a person can make it to the Bruce Estate Mine and follow the ridge to the summit. See The Spring Mountain Canyon page for driving information. This page covers the South Ridge Route. To climb the peak via its north face see the North Face Miskin Steadman Route page.
South Ridge Route (Class 2)
This route leaves the mining road described on the Spring Mountain Canyon page. Simply follow the crest north to the summit with minimal up and down travel.
