At 1.1 miles, reach BLM land. At 1.6 miles, reach the Sawtooth National Forest. At 3.4 miles, reach a signed junction in a large meadow. FSR-979 goes left/east here. FSR-124 crosses Cove Creek via a culvert and continues south. Park at this junction (6,674 feet). GPS coordinates: 43⁰35’40”N, 114⁰11’09”W.

East Ridge, Class 2

The Climb

From the road junction, follow FSR-124 south for about 100 yards as it crosses [small] Cove Creek and reaches an unsigned road junction. This junction sits at the base of the east ridge of Peak 7292. Leave the road and scramble up the moderately steep, rounded ridge through sagebrush and other vegetation. Stay to the left/south of thicker brush and aspens as you progress up the ridge. High up, the slope eases and leads to the summit. The summit has a small cairn. The sagebrush/vegetation on this climb is relatively docile as compared to other hikes in this area.
