List Description

In many ways, the Olympic Mountains are a vast undiscovered country to Seattle-area hikers and climbers. The peaks are lower in elevation and harder to access than those in the Cascade Range, but they still offer a remarkable amount of ruggedness and wilderness.

This list shows the highest peaks in the range, all above an arbitrary 6500-foot cutoff. A peak only earns a rank if it has over 400 feet of clean prominence. Note that the Olympic Climber's Guide lists many named rock towers and spires in the Olympus, Constance, and Deception areas that have very low prominence values and are therefore not ranked.

Acknowledgements:

  • This list was first prepared in about 1998, using the Olympic Climber's Guide as a starting point and looking at paper topographic maps.
  • Many thanks to Paul Klenke, who prepared an exhaustive Olympic summit list (see link below) and helpfully pointed out several discrepancies and errors in this list.
