Thanks to Bob Halterman for adding this peak.

Mt. Yoran is found in the Diamond Peak Wilderness rising between the Willamette Pass Ski Area and Diamond Peak. It is one of the best recognized features of the area as seen from Highway 58 where scenic waysides offer views of the formation several miles away. Mt. Yoran appears as a distinct eroded rock plug projecting from the northern slopes of Diamond Peak. In winter Yoran stands frozen in snow and ice, but in warmer months the formation is a black volcanic rock. Deep forest surrounds the base of the mountain. Mt. Yoran offers technical rock climbing opportunities after a four mile hike in from the Notch Lake trail off Forest Service Road 23.
