Washington Pass rock climbing

Cutthroat Peak South Buttress

Climb­ing at Wash­ing­ton Pass pro­vides a place of leg­endary beau­ty; a moun­taineer’s and rock climber’s par­adise with jagged peaks that are often snow-cov­ered year round, frigid alpine lakes, tow­er­ing gran­ite spires, and ver­dant green conif­er­ous for­est. Among the more beau­ti­ful moun­tains of the Okanogan range Cut­throat Peak sits above the main road through Wash­ing­ton Pass, beck­on­ing hik­ers and climbers towards its tow­er­ing flanks. 

The South But­tress route ascends eas­i­er climb­ing on the sweep­ing wall of gran­ite and is bro­ken up by sec­tions of mod­er­ate rock that are just chal­leng­ing enough to be enjoy­able with­out being intim­i­dat­ing. From the sum­mit of Cut­throat Peak there are tremen­dous views of Lib­er­ty Bell Moun­tain, Whistler Moun­tain, Sil­ver­star, and Black Peak, among many oth­ers in the wild North Cas­cades. A climb of Cut­throat is not to be missed if you are plan­ning a trip to Wash­ing­ton Pass!
