Peak 11272

Elevation: 11,272 ft
Prominence: 692

Climbing information for this peak is found on page 223.


This impressive but unnamed summit is a pyramid-shaped granite mountain that culminates in a pointed summit block that barely accommodates two climbers. It currently resides at number 5 on my list of favorite Idaho Climbs. Since it is centrally located it is an ideal place to orient yourself to the surrounding peaks, and the nearby Sawtooth, Lost River and Pioneer ranges. The northeast ridge is an enjoyable Class 3+ scramble.

Below, you will find a number of photos of the peak from many of the surrounding summits as well as links to two trip reports.

The summit of Peak 11272 with its studded granite crown reminds me of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains.
