      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Question re: Diamond Peak Loop in Central Oregon

Recommended Posts

Starting on 7/29 I will be backpacking for 4 nights doing the Diamond Peak Loop along with climbing Diamond Peak and hopefully Mt. Yoran and Lakeview Mtn. My question is, what approaches are going to be the least technical for Yoran and Lakeview? Any climber trails?


Many thanks!!!!! Any other advice would be greatly appreciated as I have not been in this area before.


Thanks, Jeff

I have not actually been on Diamond Peak but i have been all over the Yoran Lake/Peak area, and around Lakeview Mtn. Very nice area, bring skeeter dope though! Yoran Peak is kind of a choss heap, make your best judgment as far as that goes, and Lakeview mtn can easily be hiked from the south end, hike up to the ridge, and follow it north to the summit. The north side of Lakeview is the steap side. There are not too many trails going into Lakeview mtn, mostly game trails that maybe a couple of hikers or hunters have used. Bring a map and compass and you'll be fine. Enjoy the trip! wave.gif
