Peak 11292 (Huhs Horn)

Elevation: 11,292 ft
Prominence: 392

Climbing and access information for this peak is discussed on page 326. I mistakenly placed Huhs Horn in the Beaverhead Southwest Divide in the book. The peak is actually part of the Southeast Divide.


Named for Oscar Huh, Rick Baugher first brought this beautiful Beaverhead Range peak to my attention. It is located between Italian Peak and Scott Peak. It has become popular with Idaho climbers over the last 20 years and it is likely that it is climbed almost as often as the range’s highest peak, Scott Peak. Use the link below to read Rick’s remembrance of Oscar.

East Ridge, Class 2+

Descend west off of Scott Peak on stable talus to the Scott/Huhs saddle and then follow Huhs east ridge to the summit. There are numerous rocky steps along the way. They can all be bypassed on the south side of the ridge where there are broken goat trails.
