King Mountain is one of the most massive peaks in the state. It is the 168th-highest Idaho summit and, in terms of prominence, it ranks #50. It is a great mountain by any measure. As a result of the mapmakers placing the peak’s name on the peak’s lower, middle summit, most people who attempt King Mountain stop at its lower summit which is 10,612 feet and is unranked. The true summit of this peak is referred to as North King Mountain by LOJ and Peakbagger. Clearly, the highest point on this great mountain is the summit of King Mountain, not the lower middle summit. I do not have any problem with people counting the 10,612-foot peak as a separate peak, but if you want to climb King Mountain follow the long, enjoyable ridge north to the true summit.
