Peak 7777 is the high point on a massive ridge that separates the convergence of the East Fork Wood River from the Big Wood River on ID-75 a few miles north of Hailey. Peak 7777 is often climbed in combination with nearby Peak 7036. USGS Sun Valley
South Ridge, Class 2
From the ridge juncture with Peak 7036, follow the primary ridge crest north over Point 6812 in open terrain then drop to a saddle. From the saddle, bash northeast up a shoulder (of sorts) of thick sagebrush (with some boulders mixed in) to reach the south ridge of Peak 7777. This is a steep, miserable bushwhack, but it goes. Weave a lot and just grind it out. Once on the south ridge, it is a somewhat tedious ridge climb north through a mix of rocky ridge outcrops/boulders and unending sagebrush and other veg. Reach a false summit hump with scattered pines then continue in open scrub to the true summit. The summit of Peak 7777 had a large, flattened cairn amidst the sagebrush so I rebuilt it a bit.
