Haystack Mountain

Elevation: 8,780 ft
Prominence: 1,480

This peak is not in the book.

Haystack Mountain is located northwest of Salmon, Idaho. This section of the Salmon River Mountains is comprised of long tree covered ridges without any interesting peaks. Although I hiked to its summit and it is named on the map, I did not put it into the book because it is not much of a peak and because USFS roads lead nearly to its broad, tree covered summit. The crux of the climb is determining the high point. Yes, this is a peak bagger’s confession. I climbed it because it was a named summit. Find a peak bagger without a summit on their list that embarrasses them if you can.
