The east face of Peak 7116


From Malta, Idaho, drive south on Highway 81 for 6.0 miles. Turn west onto [signed] 2160 S. Kane Springs Road. The road is a good, county-maintained gravel road until it turns northwest toward a ranch. Turn left on the 2-track road that leaves the main road at this turn. Follow this road south, crossing Kane Creek and continue south past the saddle on the west end of Sheep Mountain. The road crosses another drainage and quickly reaches a junction with a 2-track road that runs west to the base of Peak 7116. Follow this 2-track road until it ends at an old fence enclosure. Park here. A high-clearance vehicle is recommended. See the map below.

East Face, Class 2

The peak’s east face is composed of several grass- and sagebrush-covered ribs and gullies. From the end of the road, a faint and illegal ATV trail continues toward the summit for a short distance. Follow this track to its end and then continue to ascend on whatever line looks best to you. The summit is 1.0 mile and 1,100 feet of elevation gain above the parking area.
