hike: diamond peak, idaho

Diamond Peak is the highpoint of the Lehmi Range at 12,197', and is one of the 57 ultra-prominent peaks in the continental US. My plan is to climb the east ridge, which involves some Class 3 scrambling in places. Much of the route follows a climber's trail. I would like to go sometime in mid-August through Labor Day weekend. The exact dates will be coordinated with the group. On Day 1, we'll drive about 270 miles to the trailhead at 8,000' and car camp. On Day 2, we'll climb the peak, and car camp or stay at a motel somewhere. Arrive home around noon on Day 3. We'll need 4WD vehicles to make it all the way into the trailhead. Contact me by mid-July if you're interested in going.
