Same as for Peak 7444. This is the second leg of a three-peak journey on the north side of Timbered Dome.

Northwest Ridge, Class 3

The Climb

From the 6,820-foot connecting saddle with Peak 7444, follow a shoulder southeast to cross the southwest ridge of Point 7218 and continue southwest down an undulating ridge to reach a saddle at the base of the west ridge of Peak 7248. Scramble east up the final section of ridge (Class 3) to reach the summit.

West Ridge, Class 3

The Descent

From the summit, descend the upper west ridge (Class 3) to a minor saddle. From here, descend south down a gully. Angle diagonally right/west onto a shoulder and follow it down to a jeep road that leads west to the head of a drainage with two cattle fences to cross. This is the base of the west ridge and concludes the second leg of today’s three-peak journey. Peak 6820 is up next.
