Anyone been up either of these peaks, out by the ghost town Pearl? I'm stuck close to home (Boise) for a little while and I'm looking for some new summits to climb. Not sure about accessibility on these too--BLM maps show it virtually all private property--but the BLM maps also don't show the highway to Horseshoe bend, so. . .

Thanks!

Prospect Peak is pretty easily accessible from the area just east of Pearl. Dan and I hiked up there in 2002 (has it been that long?!) and there were no postings. Unsurprisingly, it is not much of a summit.

Crown Point was our initial goal and it was aggressively posted both from the Pearl side and the northern side (west of Gardena). If you can find an accessible route on this peak, please let us know!

It's not a lot more driving from Boise to try Garden Peak:
