From Malta, Idaho, drive south on Highway 81 for 6.0 miles. Turn west onto the signed 2160 S. Kane Springs Road. The road is a good county maintained gravel road until it turns northwest toward a ranch. Turn left on the two track that leaves the main road at this turn. Follow this road south, crossing Kane Creek and then continue south to the saddle at the base of the peak’s western end. There is a large water tank at this spot and a flat spot for camping. High clearance vehicle recommended.
West Ridge, Class 3
From the water tank hike up the peak’s broad western ridge, zig-zagging through several rock bands. Cross the western high point and continue on to the middle high point which is the true summit. It is capped by a crown of broken volcanic rock. At the eastern end of this outcrop look for a ten foot wall. Climb this wall with good holds to reach the summit.
