Mt. Shuksan Climbs with International Mountain Guides

North Cascades National Park

Mt. Shuksan is one of the highest non-volcanic peaks in the Northwest at 9,127 feet. A strikingly beautiful peak, it is the most frequently photographed mountain in the United States.

Mt. Shuksan has it all for the aspiring mountaineer: Its many routes give good options for both moderate glacier climbing as well as moderate technical rock climbing and ice climbing. All routes on Mt Shuksan offer fantastic opportunities for training in ice axe arrest, cramponing, crevasse rescue skills and technical alpine climbing. The spectacular summit pyramid demands steeper snow climbing and/or moderate rock scrambling to get to the summit pyramid. Your IMG guide will take you through the training process of Mt. Shuksan for a classic Northwest mountain experience.
