BLM-614 is the primary access to this peak. See the Samaria Mountains and Samaria Mountain pages for detailed access information.

West Ridge, Class 2

While this peak can be climbed directly from BLM-614 via its east ridge, the shortest route is to drive the 4WD road that leads from BLM-614 to the top of the peak’s west ridge. In either case, you must cross the range fence on the ridge crest. Once you have crossed the fence, the summit is only three minutes away.

The Climb

From the signed junction of North Canyon Road/BLM-618 and BLM-101 at the base of the east ridge, cross to the right/north side of a fence row and follow the fence row west briefly to reach the crest of the east ridge. Leave the fence row (which crosses the south face of Peak 7695) and scramble northwest then west up the east ridge. The sagebrush and other veg is thick initially but the ridge crest isn’t too bad. The ridge weaves a bit before reaching the open summit. There is a modest cairn on top and triangulation posts lay on the ground nearby.
