This subrange is coverd in the book on pages 111 to 116.. Lick Creek peaks found on this site significantly expand the books content. All peaks are found at this link: Lick Creek Peaks.
The name Lick Creek Range has not been adopted by the USGS. Nevertheless, many people use it to identify the divide that sits between the North Fork Payette River in the west and the South Fork Salmon River on the east. The northern end of this subrange is bounded by the Warren Wagon Road and the Sesech River. In the south the subrange terminated at the Warm Lake Highway. As such, this group of mountains comprises the largest of the Salmon River Mountains subranges forming an impressive divide about 40 miles long from north to south and more than 20 miles wide at its widest point.
The highest Lick Creek Peaks are clustered at the range’s northern end; at 9,322 feet, North Loon takes the honors as the highest of the bunch. The subrange includes over a hundred unnamed summits which are not in the book. As always, the lack of a name does not mean the peak is not worth climbing. I will continue to add these peaks as I climb them or others provide me with information. This subrange is coverd in the book on pages 111 to 116..

The trails in this area vary greatly in their state of maintenance. Unfortunately, many miles of trail have disappeared due to neglect and damage caused by forest fires. Large sections of the subrange have burned over the last 25 years. The fires have opened up the country and the views and crosscountry travel is a bit easier now.
In addition to the many peaks in the Lick Creek range there is a lot of good clean granite. Around Needles Peak you can find an array of granite formation that have attracted rock climbers for years and host many bolted routes. Check out the Pins and Needles Climbing Guide for technical climbing routes.
Even more famous, is the formation known as Slick Rock which has provided a proving ground for big wall climbers since the early 70s.
