Mount Triumph

Northeast Ridge

Sur­round­ed by a steep and extreme­ly rugged part of the North Cas­cades Nation­al Park, a climb on Mount Tri­umph offers one of the best mod­er­ate alpine rock routes in Wash­ing­ton State. The North­east Ridge, first climbed in 1965 by local pio­neers Joan and Joe Firey, is a straight­for­ward yet exposed climb on sol­id Skag­it gneiss. Tri­umph’s prox­im­i­ty, a few miles south­west of the infa­mous Pick­et Range, adds to its won­der­ful ambiance and pro­vides climbers with an amaz­ing back­drop while climb­ing the North­east Ridge. The approach is stren­u­ous (part of it on a great trail, the oth­er part via mod­er­ate cross-coun­try trav­el), but cer­tain­ly worth the effort. This is a fan­tas­tic peak that rivals For­bid­den or Shuk­san but is less trav­eled and more remote.
