Mount Shuksan North Face

Mount Shuksan’s North Face is a clas­sic snow and ice route that har­bors all the chal­lenges of a true Nord­wand” – a stren­u­ous approach, remote­ness, direct and sus­tained climb­ing, a high lev­el of com­mit­ment, and a com­pli­cat­ed descent. Accord­ing to Amer­i­can climb­ing leg­end Fred Beck­ey, this peak epit­o­mizes the jagged alpine peak like no oth­er mas­sif in the North Cas­cades – it has no equal in the range when one con­sid­ers the struc­tur­al beau­ty of its four major faces and five ridges and the vari­ety of routes they provide.”

This climb is done on a cus­tom basis.
