The Horn is the outstanding formation in a collection of domes, giant talus boulders, and mature Ponderosa pine. The rock is sharp, young, shallow cooled, gas pocketed, intrusive igneous rock, part of the Henry Mountains Lacolith. Not too sharp for fun. At least that is how it used to be...

A forest fire has consumed the area. It may still be very dangerous and dirty.

Getting There 

Head south on highway 95 from Hanksville. After almost twenty miles, turn right onto the Bull Mountain Road. After heading south for about ten miles, the road changes course to the west and climbs up to the Coyote Benches. Soon after, Bull Mountain Road turns north, along the east side of Mount Pennell. You'll see The Horn shortly after.

About 40 or 50 routes using bolts and gear are to be found here! Many of the bolt lines are quite hard, twelves and thirteens.

This long secret Utah area is well guarded by 25 miles of 4WD road that now sometimes washes out in the rain due to the fire. It's really baffling why such a remote and hard to get to place has been kept such a big secret.
