I took the shifter off the bike, removed the cover and checked function. Apparently the pawl was stuck in old dried-up grease, and wasn't fully engaging the cogs. It was pushing on the stop, which allowed it to shift up to four times with a single push through the entire range, but after ratcheting back, it would skip over the cogs when trying to advance the gear further, until it reached the end of its range of motion. I put a few drops of CLP in the pawl mechanism, and that freed it up so that the pawl now fully engages on all cogs. Working with all seven sprockets again!

Thanks for the help everyone.
