The Crown Jewel of the North Cascades! Mt. Shuksan is one of the most photographed peaks in the world, and for great reason; it is stunningly beautiful. Covered in glaciers, rock ridges, and deep forests, Shuksan is a true alpine paradise.
Mount Shuksan offers a wide range of climbs from intermediate alpine test-pieces like Fischer Chimneys, to classic glaciated adventures like the Sulphide glacier route. No route up this mountain is “easy”, as the summit pinnacle makes all whom want to stand on the summit earn the last 400? by rock climbing.
Fischer Chimneys Route:
Fischer ChimneysThis is one magical climbing experience. Travel through ancient deciduous forests, camp along a pristine alpine lake, and climb 3,000? of 4th class rock that exits directly onto a heavily crevassed glacier. If you want to put all of your skills to the test, and learn an immense amount of knowledge about complex alpine travel. This climb will not disappoint.
While this climb will push you physically, KAF Adventures will help you get there with as little risk as possible and will leave you feeling like you are a competent, integral member of the team.
