Eldorado Peak

Climb into the heart of the North Cascades

Locat­ed in the rugged North Cas­cades Nation­al Park, Eldo­ra­do Peak is famous for its knife edge sum­mit ridge and its unsur­passed views. Approach­ing via the straight­for­ward Eldo­ra­do Glac­i­er, climbers have ample oppor­tu­ni­ty to prac­tice their glac­i­er moun­taineer­ing skills before reach­ing the exposed East Ridge, which involves steep snow with won­der­ful climb­ing exposure.

From the sum­mit climbers take in the views of For­bid­den Peak’s amaz­ing nord­wand,” the peaks of the Inspi­ra­tion-Klawat­ti Ice Cap and the Ptarmi­gan Tra­verse, Mount Shuk­san, and Mount Bak­er to the north. This is with­out a doubt one of the most famous views in Wash­ing­ton — don’t for­get your camera!
