Climbing information for this peak on pages 152 to 153.


Three Point Mountain is the southern end of the long north-south ridge anchored by Kepros Peak in the north. Kepros is one of the popular Grand Slam Peaks. As a result a lot of people combine an ascent of this peak as part of the trek to Kepros. This is an easy summit to grab early in the year.

GETTING THERE

From I-84 use Exit 64 east of Boise. From the exit, take the well-paved road north through rolling hill country. Keep left at the only paved fork (which has signs for stores in Prairie, Idaho). Continue on this road, which soon turns to gravel, to Black Creek Pass, 9 miles from the freeway. A large parking area is located on the east side of the pass, and the trail starts on the west side.

ROUTE

From the trailhead follow the trail up and west to the ridge line north of the peak and turn south and climb the ridge to the top. Make sure to visit all three summits. Class 2
