Peak 7034 is one of four ranked summits on a ridgeline that separates Fall Creek from Pritchard Creek in the Caribou Range northwest of Palisades Reservoir. This climb is part of a four-peak adventure that includes Peak 6958, Peak 7100, Peak 7034, and Peak 6775. This is mostly open country but has patches of aspen forests to navigate. USGS Conant Valley
Same as for Peak 6958. This is the third leg of a four-peak journey that begins along Fall Creek Road.
North Ridge, Class 2
From the 6,500-foot connecting saddle with Peak 7100, climb up the steep north ridge through a semi-open aspen forest (not too bad) to reach a very steep patch of thick brush about 200 vertical feet below the summit. Bash through the brush to reach the open summit of Peak 7034. The summit has a somewhat-flattened summit cairn.
West Ridge, Class 2
From the summit, follow the meandering ridge crest west then southwest in open terrain. Do a diagonal westward descent through scattered mountain mahogany and brush to reach the 6,420-foot connecting saddle with Peak 6775. This concludes the third leg of today’s four-peak journey. Peak 6775 is up next.
