Description

Looming steeply above the Chickamin Galcier, the North Gunsight Peak boasts one of the Cascades' sheerest and cleanest faces. Although fiary broken up from the East, good rock and lower-angle terrain may eventually yield high-quality rock climbs as well. This peak also has an interesting summit structure, with a thin terrace/sidewalk (still housing the original 1938 summit register) roughly 30' below teh actual top of the peak, which is reached via chimneys or corners from the small terrace below.
