Mount Shuksan Fisher Chimneys

North Cascades Intermediate Summit Climb

A climb by any route on Mount Shuk­san is one of pure delight. This alpine clas­sic com­bines an ascent on both glac­i­ers and rock, pro­vid­ing an excit­ing 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. It is a mas­sive and com­plex moun­tain and is often com­pared to the Weis­shorn of the Swiss Alps, and cer­tain­ly an excel­lent prepa­ra­tion for the Mat­ter­horn. The Fish­er Chim­neys var­ied rock ter­rain, hang­ing glac­i­ers, and com­pli­cat­ed route find­ing mak­ing it an excel­lent objec­tive for the advanced begin­ner or inter­me­di­ate lev­el climber.
