Scott,

Is that just east of Ruby/Horsethief Canyon on the Colorado River? Couldn't tell from the photo. If so, it's a super popular rafting section of the Colorado, I did it solo last year in a pack raft. Fwiw, I did a sorta-kinda recon of a 5th class peak just up from my campsite (Mee Canyon), but returned to camp before I got close enough to scout routes. Got lazy. I wanted to get back to camp so I could finish the route, the afternoon upriver winds are notorious there, and I wanted to try and beat them before they made the paddle out miserable. More than you (or anyone else) wanted to know, just curious about your map photo.

-Tom

It's north of Ruby Horsethief towards the east side. You can see the river from up there.

Tom there are a bunch of biking trails up there, there is a trailhead at the saddle between this peak and Mack BM to its NW. Easy access from the Mack or Loma Exit, though 2WD may want to park before it climbs up to the TH/Saddle. Moore Fun is more technical for bikes, I trail ran both peaks. Good views of the river up there!
