Anderson Mountain, Idaho | 26 July 2023

Summit: 
W7I/LE-179

Anderson Mountain is a drive-up for most vehicles (possibly excluding low clearance vehicles). Nearby places to visit include the Big Hole National Battlefield. The Battlefield is the site of an 1877 tragic and deadly encounter between the Nez Perce Tribe and the US Military. The Battlefield Visitor Center is located approximately 17 miles east on Highway #43 from Lost Trail Pass, Idaho/Montana border.

Pansy Mountain, OR - October 2023

Summit: 
W7O/WV-010

Pansy Mountain has not been activated since the 2021 fires.  I originally intended to do both Pansy Mountain and Bull of the Woods, but I did not get an early enough start for a late autumn hike.  Getting there is straight forward.  A high clearance vehicle is helpful for a couple of sections, but it is probably not absolutely necessary.  Follow the directions from the Forest Service:

Stockade Mountain, OR | October 2022

Summit: 
W7O/SE-053

I did this summit in the area my family hunts mule deer, as I didn’t have tags last year and still wanted the family trip to the desert.

Barry Point

Summit: 
W7O/CE-079

I decided to attempt Barry Point following the Annular Eclipse of 2023. I approached it from the South and drove clockwise to a point north of the peak where a dirt road heads South East up the hill, parking at 42.113809, -120.793403.

This last leg of the drive contained pretty deep ruts (presumably from people driving through the snow), a few mud puddles (even in October). Definitely need high-clearance and probably 4wd once you leave the gravel road and turn SE.

Cape Horn Peak, ID | Oct 2023

Summit: 
W7I/NP-135

I recently had the occasion to spend some time in Northern Idaho and while there I activated this summit.

The road up to the summit starts from Hwy 95, heading East on Hwy 54 and North on N Perimeter and East again on Bayview Rd to N Cherokee Rd and north following that up.  N Cherokee Rd is also shown as FS 297 on Google Maps.  The road condition is not great with many ruts down the middle.  I had to straddle the ruts in many cases.  A high-clearance vehicle is probably required.

Whaleback, OR | July 2023

Summit: 
W7O/CS-085

Turn off ORE-62 Crater Lake Hwy onto NF-68, and then just follow NF-68: right at 42.8641, -122.5061; bear left at 42.873, -122.4977; and follow the pavement to the end; the turns are mostly obvious after here, Caltopo's map is quite good to Abbott Butte Trailhead; when forest management crews haven't closed the trail for fire and burnt tree hazard mitigation, you can combine this with that hike.
