Peak 7693 is a remote peak situated on the north side of Pritchard Creek Canyon in the Caribou Range. It is difficult to reach thanks to private land closures at the mouth of Pritchard Creek Canyon. It can be reached, however, via a long ridge traverse and bushwhack from Blacktail Canyon and Fall Creek Road. USGS Point Lookout
Same as for Point Lookout. This climb is the third leg of a three-peak journey that begins on Blacktail Canyon Road at its junction with Fall Creek Road.
Southwest Face, Class 2
From the thickly-forested connecting saddle with Peak 7637, bushwhack northeast out of the forest and into open scrub onto a shoulder. Follow this magnificent, tree-free shoulder northeast the north to the summit. Unlike nearby Peak 7637 (which has no summit cairn), Peak 7693 has twin summit cairns, both equally impressive and tall. The final section of summit ridge is rocky with lots of veg mixed in with the boulders/talus and short aspens–not a pleasant combination to finish it off with. The high point is located on a narrow section of ridge crest. The views from the [lower] open ridge point to the east of the true summit are magnificent.
