Description

WNW facing alpine rock. Remote feel though relatively close to Ketchum. Pink/ orange granite intrusion surrounded by choss!

Getting There

Approximately 12 miles north of Ketchum, off highway 75. Turn right on silver ck rd, this is a steep, gravel road that varies in quality, a vehicle with good tires and clearance is advised, accessing this road is only open late spring, and closes again once the snow starts flying. Drive up this road, staying right at all junctions.After some steep switchbacks take the road that branches left. Follow this for to a dead end and old ruin, park here. From here, it is a 1500' rising traverse, crossing three drainages and lots of loose scree. A hiking pole and good boots are recommended. The billy goat is the obvious red buttress that rises to a point on the ridge.
