Climbing Mt. Shuksan and North Cascades Summits

Courses and Climbs in the Heart of America's Alps

Towering over Artists' Point and the upper Nooksack Valley, Mt. Shuksan is one of the most photographed peaks in the world, recognized visually by millions of people who do not know its name or location. As a climbing objective, this fairy-tale summit offers an extraordinary variety of routes, from rock climbs on Shuksan's challenging greenschist to hanging glaciers and steep snow climbs. East of Mount Shuksan, North Cascades National Park holds dozens of peaks over 8,000 feet, including Eldorado, Sahale, Forbidden, and the Liberty Bell group. The programs listed here all include one or more of these outstanding climbs.
