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. The peak’s name, proposed by Idaho peakbagger Rick Baugher, honors Little Lost River pioneers Orville and Rhea Nicholson and their ranch which sits near the base of the peak.

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