Deserted Peak and Peak 7100 on Elaho-Jervis Divide
A rounded dome, sharing a prominent position with Deserted Peak on the Elaho-Jervis Divide. Peak 7100 lies 800m north of Deserted Peak. It is most easily reached from the Elaho River at Mile 48.5 on G-Main. The improbable-looking approach route follows Bierman Creek which presents an aspect of 500m rock faces above the entrance to a narrow canyon.

From G-Main, climb 50m through logging debris which skirts Bierman Creek. Bushwhack into the canyon to intersect the first of many avalanche tracks. It is best done on skis after warm, wet weather in spring has brought down avalanche debris to provide an avenue for travel. Cross Bierman Creek to its south side and travel through suprisingly accomodating ski terrain. The route crosses or utilizes two or three major avalanche tracks below 2500ft. Where Bierman Creek enters a second canyon at mid-valley and a major avalanche path enters from the south, climb the debris fan to gain steep timber at 2500ft. Above that, slope angle and danger from slides diminishes until the base of Peak 7100 is reached, 800m east of twin lakes in the valley bottom.

A 3300ft snow slope about 1km wide rises southward from the valley to the summit of Peak 7100. This is advisedly a commiting ski ascent although a series of rolls and troughs about two-thirds of the way up can be exploited to minimize anxiety. It is then advisable to fork to the left or right to go any higher, although at the extreme left there is a cornice. Steep ridgelines bracket the face and forestall any other lines on the north except the direct NE face.

The possibility exists of circumventing the NE face by skiing up the col with Deserted River above Deserted Lake SE of the peak. This wasn't explored but looks feasible.
