Ascent Trip Report3h30 from forest road junction 3km S of peak, parking half a mile S of Adam Walker's start point of a month ago, as road to N and E at that point has recently been debuilt with culverts replaced by deep channels. We accessed the forest road from 50.55967, -119.34896 - turning not marked on topo map. My GPS track recorded poorly but should give an idea of the driving route. Was OK in our Santa Fe AWD, should be OK in 2wd with care.
Ida has 2 main summits approx same height, 1.1km apart, with 3 summits between them, separated by scrambly gaps, the whole covered in old deadfall, entertaining but took an hour longer than expected. Revisit, as last year I only made the far east 'tourist' summit which is 50m lower. Having seen Adam and John made the summit, I called back in passing.
Topo map has E summit 1567m; peakbagger favours W summit but listed 3m lower at 1564m. Hand level suggests W summit is probably higher viewing E-W but low confidence as E summit has trees hence ground not properly visible viewing W-E.
