Access

Peak 7814 can be quickly reached from the Big Canyon/Knox Canyon Pass. See the access information on Page 356 or use the directions found on the Deep Creek Peak page.

Southeast Ridge, Class 2

Follow the road to the base of the peak’s Southeast Ridge. There is a good parking spot. A trail of sorts is easily spotted climbing up through the brush. Follow this up the ridge. Above the brush, the trail looks like an old bulldozer track. Continue up this track to the base of the cliff above. Skirt the cliff on the east to gain the ridge that leads to the summit. The route gains less than 400 feet in 0.3 miles.

I forgot to turn on my GPS but my route generally followed the blue line.
