Mount Shuksan Fisher Chimneys

Intermediate Summit Climb

A climb by any route on Mount Shuk­san is one of pure delight as it com­bines ascents on glac­i­ers and rock to pro­vide a vari­ety of moun­taineer­ing chal­lenge. It is one of the most pho­tographed moun­tains in the world and an icon for the state of Wash­ing­ton. It is sit­u­at­ed on the north­west­ern edge of the famed North Cas­cades Nation­al Park and is a mere 10 miles east of neigh­bor Mount Bak­er. The world record hold­er for annu­al snow­fall – the Mount Bak­er Ski Area – is actu­al­ly locat­ed on the flanks of Shuk­san. It is a mas­sive and com­plex moun­tain and is often com­pared to the Weis­shorn of the Swiss Alps. Its var­ied rock ter­rain, hang­ing glac­i­ers, and com­pli­cat­ed route find­ing mak­ing it an excel­lent objec­tive for the begin­ning or advanced climber.
