Elevation: 8,984 ft
This peak is not in the book. The Sleeping Deer Mountain Road provides high access to many Eastern Salmon River Mountains peaks. See the Sleeping Deer Mountain page for information on the road.
A fire lookout was placed on the summit of Fly Creek Point in 1935 and was still occasionally used well into the 1960s. The lookout was reportedly burned by vandals in 1993. As you might expect, the views from the summit are massive. The access road crosses the peak’s South Slopes at 8,600 feet. The old unmaintained road to the lookout makes an ascent to the summit an easy Class 1 walk. This is an easy prize for peakbaggers, if you survive the drive. USGS Sheldon Peak
