List Description

This list was originated by Jeff Howbert, in an article in the "Pack & Paddle" newsletter in May, 2000. It is a counterpart to the "Home Court" list of peaks close to Seattle--both lists contain peaks between I-90 and US 2, with the Home Court peaks to the west and the Back Court to the east. For Seattle-area climbers looking for weekend goals without the long drives to the North Cascades, these lists provide years worth of hiking and climbing.

Selected Guidebook(s) for this List

       Cascade Alpine Guide, Vol. 1 (Beckey)

Caution: These books feature many of the peaks on this list, but may not have information on all of them.
