Elevation: 6,416 ft
This peak is not in the book.
West Twin Peak sits, of course due west of East Twin Peak on the Bennett Mountain Hills’ crest. Like its Twin it can be climbed from almost any direction.
Road access to the peak’s southern slopes is via the Bennett Mountain Road. This road is discussed in detail on the Bennett Mountain Hills page. Starting on ID-46 take the Gooding City of Rocks Road to the signed Davis Mountain Road. Follow this road west for eight rough miles to the East Fork Clover Creek. 4WD recommended. Just after you cross the creek a two-track heads up the drainage. Follow this road to the 5,600 foot contour.
West Face, Class 2
The west slopes are open and almost any line will take you to the summit ridge. My line is shown on the map below. The mileage to the top was 0.84 miles with 820 feet of gain.
