This ragged jumble of broken rock is located 1.2 miles northwest of Italian Peak.
Tuscany Peak 10776′, prominence 346′, is on the Idaho-Montana Continental Divide, 0.8 mile NW of parent Italian Peak. See Scott Peak 7.5′ quad. On 8/9/01 Rick Baugher followed the route described in the book (pg 325). Here is his report.
“From locked gate at 7200′ in Scott Canyon on the Idaho side of the Beaverhead Mountains, hike single track motorcycle trail up canyon. Off trail, ascend rubbly gully N to reach 10020′ saddle. This is SW spur of Italian Peak. Having already done Italian Peak, I opted for a debatable short cut by doing a longish side hilling ascent to the 10420′ Italian-Tuscany saddle on the C-D. From here, followed game trail NW on ridge until faced with gnarly rotten limestone towers.”
With a little Class 3 climbing gained the 10776′ summit of Tuscany Peak. Built cairn, left register on this remote summit. Found something like a nylon gasket, indicating someone in the recent past had been up here.
Further to the NW, on Point 10645′, was an iron stateline milepost marker (MP 576) placed by the Carpenter Stateline Survey in 1905.
