Gunsight Peak seen from the west. This is the highest mountain in the Malad Range. This is one of the sub-ranges of the Bannock Range and Gunsight Peak is the highpoint of what is known as Clarkston Mountain. The small town of Clarkston is located to the east.

It is a very good idea to mark the climbing path.
I have always imagine this path before climbing,
Congratulations

Thank you. The route up this mountain is not obvious so it is helpful to show it in the photo.

Gunsight. Amazing that I had just been looking at maps of this one and wanted to ask you what you knew about it. I was wondering if there were any access problems or how difficult a peak it was and how long it would take, etc....
Nice submission.

Thanks, Dean. This is one of the most direct routes up the mountain. I would rate this as steep class 2 with some scrambling. It takes half a day to climb the mountain if you live nearby. It will take most of a day if you have to drive a long distance to get there.

Access for this route is near the border of Northern Utah not far from Interstate 15. There is an exit near a gas station and a dirt road goes right below the west face. The views of Northern Utah from Gunsight Peak are very good.

I believe there is an easier route from the north up Elgrove Canyon. I’m not sure about access for this dirt road though. I will try that route later when the weather is cooler and the smoke from all the wildfires isn’t so bad.
