Ascent Trip Report

Reached 1500m+ summit (far east) only; the higher summits would involve a rappel, or dropping down S and traversing below the tower, or direct ascent from lower forest road ie from NE, then possibly steep loose soily scramble to east summit. I decided to head for Shuswap Peak instead.

Approached from N, Salmon Arm, Cemetery Rd, Mt Ida FSR, a bit rough, coaxed the RAV4 to 770m and hiked the remaining forest road, then signpost West Peak (which goes only to the far east summit....) NB Topo map has (main) east summit 1567; west summit 1564.
