Ascent Trip Report

This is a nice hike from the south. We drove in a bit higher than Steve Sheriff and found a good camp spot on a plateau above Bradshaw Basin.
Driving Directions:
From the junction of highways 75 and 93 near Challis go south on 93 for 16 miles.
0.0 Zero odometer and go right(west)onto Spar Canyon Road. This is a good graded road.
7.0 go right off Spar Canyon Road onto a fair dirt road
7.6 go left at a junction
7.8 go right
8.8 go straight at a junction. 4WD is needed beyond here
9.7 cattle trough, steep hill above here
10.0 park at flat spot near well
The track shows an alternate parking spot that is not too bad or any worse than what has been driven so far. There is a steep hill filled with loose rock that is not worth trying above this point The hike is straight forward up the hill and north. We took a detour to Peak 9391 then went on to the summit. The road fades out and there is a drop of about 400 ft. to a broad saddle. The summit is the first rock knob. A benchmark disk is 500 ft. further north. We found an old register at the highest point by Ted Brasket that others seem to have missed.
