Boundary Peak is the highest point, at 13,147 feet (4,007 m), in the state of Nevada. It is the northernmost peak of the White Mountains, located in Great Basin region of the Western United States. 
While it is the highest point in Nevada, it is only about half a mile (1 km) from the California state line, and the considerably taller Montgomery Peak (13,441 feet (4,097 m)) located just across the state line in California. By most definitions Boundary Peak is considered to be a sub-peak of Montgomery Peak.
This peak is most often climbed from the Nevada side. From there, a climber may scramble the ridge connecting to Montgomery Peak. It is recommended that the U.S. Forest Service (Inyo National Forest) be contacted so they can provide climbing information.
