Eagle Point is a beautiful hump that sits north of Shirley Creek and east of the vast, open Raft River Valley. This is the second leg of a 2-peak journey that includes Peak 6711 and Eagle Point (6,558 feet). This adventure covers 4.5 miles with 1,800 feet of elevation gain round trip.

The Climb

From the 6,340-foot connecting saddle with Peak 6711, follow the weaving, undulating ridge crest southwest then west to the summit of Eagle Point. The ridge terrain is short grass/scrub with a broken rock base. Much of it is on an old 2-track road. The summit hump is small and bare. It lacked a cairn so I built a small one. The view of the Raft River Valley to the west is simply stunning.

The Descent, Class 2

Return down the east ridge to the connecting saddle with Peak 6711. Re-climb the southwest ridge of Peak 6711 up to a saddle just below the summit. Descend the east spur of Peak 6711 down to Pine Canyon and your parked vehicle.
