Description

The Gunsight Peaks are a group of granite spires that are located just east of the Cascades crest, surrounded by the Chickamin and Blue glaciers, and just east of Dome Peak. Their location is one of the lower-48's most remote, and this has likely kept the number of visits and established routes comparatively low. The climbing is some of the best in the Cascades, with steep granite crack and face routes in an amazing setting.
