List Description

This list showcases the incredible variety of peaks that blanket the state of Washington. Unlike the "100 Highest" or "Bulger" list, which is disproportionately focused on the North Cascades, this list covers peaks in every corner of the state, and all of them are dominant peaks in their vicinity, like high-prominence peaks worldwide.

Snowy giants like Rainier and Baker get most of the attention, but there are a number of summits on this list that are considered more difficult due to brushy approaches, steep rock faces, and other wilderness obstacles. Chimney Rock, with 5.6 rock climbing, is often cited as the hardest peak on this list from a technical standpoint.

Note that the unranked peaks on this list have less than 2000 feet of clean prominece, but they do have 2000 feet or more of optimistic prominence. These unranked peaks are "error range" summits, and some of them may have a very good chance of being over the cutoff. Some climbers elect to ascend these unranked peaks for the sake of completeness.
