This mountain is unique because of its incredibly broad and flat summit. It is perhaps the broadest summit of any 11,000 ft. peak in Idaho, being somewhat of a high plateau. Although the summit is broad and flat, the northern and eastern 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.
