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.

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