Description

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.

Thanks for the information on The Horn. I've been trying to find all established summit routes in the Henry Mountains area and have had little luck. With all of these routes and sweet explanations, it gives me more hope that I'll find some information out there. Would you have any information on summit routes in the area (The Horn &/or Bull)?
