Mount Stuart North Ridge

Famous for a reason

As one of the famed Fifty Clas­sic Climbs in North Amer­i­ca,” the North Ridge has unri­valed alpine ambiance, sol­id gran­ite, and con­tin­u­ous­ly engag­ing climb­ing. Con­sid­ered by many to be one of the pre­mier alpine rock climbs in Wash­ing­ton State, this route on 9,415-foot / 2870-meter Mount Stu­art offers inter­me­di­ate-lev­el climbers a chance to hone their skills and abil­i­ty to move fast and light through var­ied alpine rock ter­rain. The option to include the upper north ridge is avail­able for strong climbers and clas­sic! Check out the Com­plete North Ridge for those look­ing to notch it up on this 3,000-ft. route.
