Lime Mountain is unique because of its incredibly broad and flat summit. It is perhaps the broadest summit of any 11,000-foot peak in Idaho, being on somewhat of a high plateau. Although the summit is broad and flat, the North and East Faces are quite precipitous. When approached from the west or the south though, the mountain rises gradually to the summit plateau, the highest point of which is located at the northeastern tip. The name “Lime Mountain” is misleading as it is neither green nor made of limestone.
