Peak 7700 is the high point on a side ridge that is due west of Peak 7855 in the Deep Creek Mountains. It is best reached by a ridge traverse from Peak 7855. This ridge traverse is tedious and presents a few challenges. Read on. USGS Deep Creek Peak

Same as for Peak 7814. This is the third leg of a 3-peak adventure that includes Peak 7814, Peak 7855, and Peak 7700. It begins at a saddle on Big Canyon Road.

East Ridge, Class 2

The Climb

From the 7,340-foot connecting saddle with Peak 7814, follow the ridge crest west-northwest then west then west-southwest as it wiggles its way along in mostly-open scrub terrain. There are several ups and downs along the way to the open summit of Peak 7700. This is a tedious endeavor. In the thicker patches of scrub, there is typically a cattle trail to help you. Stay to the left/south side of the ridge to remain in open terrain. There is very little rock on this ridge. The summit of Peak 7700 has a decent cairn.
