Yellow Peak

Elevation: 10,968 ft
Prominence: 1,308

Climbing and access information for this peak is found on page 302.


Yellow Peak is one of top peaks in the Lemhi Range. Access is good and the neighborhood peaks are worth climbing. I recommend backpacking into this area and spending two or three nights exploring the high Lemhi Range.

Yellow Peak is a main crest summit in the central section of Lemhi Range. It is the 7th highest 10'er in Idaho. On my 6/25/94 visit, made note that the yellowish rock is not exotic, just brown iron stained quartzite. Re-erected wooden target signal. USGS benchmark 1956, probably set by J. Clark.
