Peak 6795 is situated just north of South Fork Rock Creek in the Sublett Mountains. It sits above five separate springs: Sager Spring, Young Spring, Wild Horse Spring, Yellow Jacket Spring, and Sunnyside Spring. You’ll never lack for water here. Peak 6795 is most easily accessed via FSR-583 to its south and FSR-720 to its west. It stands out as the highest scrub hump in this area. USGS Sublett Troughs
From the junction of ID-38 and ID-37 in Holbrook, drive northwest on ID-37 to a [signed] junction with Meadowbrook Road/BLM-027. Turn left/southwest onto BLM-027 and drive 1.3 miles to a [signed] junction. Go right/north onto Kress Road and drive 6.5 miles to an unsigned junction. Go left onto Holloway Canyon Road/BLM-025 and reset your odometer. At 1.7 miles, reach BLM land at a cattle guard. At 3.3 miles, reach a [signed] junction of BLM-583 (right) and BLM-606 (straight). Park just past this junction in a large pullout area (5,960 feet).
South Ridge, Class 2
From the junction of BLM-583 and BLM-606, hike (or drive) up BLM-583 (a 2-track jeep road) as it heads north over a saddle and then drops to the South Fork Rock Creek drainage. The road turns left/west in a meadow when it reaches the drainage. There is an unsigned road junction here. Ignore the 2-track road in the meadow. Continue west on BLM-583 (which becomes FSR-583) for another mile until it reaches a [signed] junction with FSR-720. Leave the road here and bushwhack north-northwest up through thick sagebrush and other brush and bushes to reach the [better-defined] south ridge higher up. Follow the ridge north on easy, open scrub as it undulates and weaves a bit to reach the summit hump of Peak 6795. The summit has a large, but flattened, cairn.
