Nicholson Peak is the most impressive Lemhi peak between Diamond Peak and Saddle Mountain when viewed from the Little Lost River Valley. This peak sits just north of Peak 10965. I recommend climbing them both on the same day.

As the ridge narrows you will encounter several obstacles that require Class 3 climbing or a descent down to easier terrain.
