boisedocroad hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 15, 2016


the weather was pretty unsettled so we decided on something low elevation. The snow was gone but road still gated so we walked the 2000ft vertical to the summit on the road and then took a shortcut straight down. Views of higher peak were obscured by clouds but lots of lava fields in sight.

Road was closed off to cars, nice hike with 30+ mph winds in the saddle 3/4 of the way up. Amazing view of eastern Idaho.

Date Climbed: May 31, 2013


I had done this when I was younger always doing the road route. Decided I wanted to make this prominent butte as hard as it deserved to be. I was rewarded with Jerusalem Sunflowers and many shades of Indian Paintbrush. I ended up taking the Southeast ridge which was far greener than the road.

Did this on my way to Arco from doing Cache Peak earlier in the day. This was my 4th summit and 2nd drive up of the day after not sleeping the previous night, thank you 5 hour energy!

DeanDrive up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2011


Dennis Poulin and I did the drive up after a long drive from near Darby Montana. The road up seemed to be in much nicer shape than the year before and we were lucky enough to have the summit to ourselves. Dinner was at Pickle's in nearby Arco (where my dad was born). We headed for the "trailhead" for Bell Mountain afterwards which made the drive for the day even longer.

MlaskyEarly Season Warmup  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2003


East Ridge 03, East Ridge '08. I've not done the road.
This "peak" is a great early season warm up because it is snow free earlier than anything else in the area.

The summit was really nice - good weather, and excellent views with lots of fresh show on all of th epeaks around the area. What is the history of the fancy look out on top of the summit.? Is it a Cold War relic ?

Walked up the snow covered road. It was very cold and windy up top but took refuge inside the fire look out.
