Check out this fine article if you have or are contemplating a visit to Idaho’s least known Wilderness, the Gospel Hump Wilderness: Seeking Solitude: 4 Ways to Explore Idaho’s Rugged Gospel Hump Wilderness by Pete Zimowsky, 2016. In 1978, Congress designated 206,053 acres land east of Riggins, Idaho, and north of the Salmon River as the Gospel-Hump Wilderness. The terrain varies from moist and heavily forested in the north to dry and sparsely vegetated in the south. Climbers will discover that these two vegetation zones are separated by high, rugged, glaciated divide of peaks like Gospel Peak. Elevations vary from 1,970 feet at the Wind River pack bridge on the Salmon River to 8,940 feet at the summit of Buffalo Hump. Pete’s article is a great primer for planning a visit to this out of the way wilderness to backpack or maybe climb Buffalo Hump.
