Overview

The White Cloud Mountains of central Idaho are home to numerous fantastic peaks. Many of the signature mountains have a pale complexion resulting from an abundance of light colored limestone in the area. With only a few exceptions, most of the peaks in the White Clouds are very obscure and rarely visited. The range is prime territory for scramblers, with the majority of peaks accessible by Class II and III routes. A handful of peaks can be reached via Class I trails, and there are a few Class IV climbs available as alternates to the easier routes, but those are much less common.

The following is a list of all the "White Cloud Peaks". The vast majority of the listings have a clean prominence of at least 300 feet. But there are also aesthetic qualities that can bring about “peak” status, so the list includes a few others that have gained “official name” designations and are worthy of inclusion.

Peak Names
  • Officially named peaks are listed in BOLD ALL CAPS. These are recognized by the USGS Board on Geographic Names.
  • Unofficially named peaks are listed in ALL CAPS. These don't carry the "official" title, but the names are widely used and accepted.
  • The remaining peak names are shown in italics. A couple are nicknames, but most just have a placeholder title based on other nearby geographical features.
