This peak is #4 on the Height List for Idaho . This peak is #2 in Prominence List for Idaho .Diamond Peak is the highest point in the Lemhi Range in eastern Idaho, between Birch Creek and Little Lost Creek. It's a fairly remote mountain with the standard access via a road along North Pass Creek. From the road, you can follow 4-wheel drive tracks westward to the mountain's east ridge, which offers a Class 3 scramble to the summit.

The peak is very close to the continental divide, and is higher than anything to the north on the divide, until you get into Canada. One other note of interest is that the largest Antelope herds in Idaho are found in the valleys on each side of the peak.
