is the second highest peak in Washington State and the third highest in the Cascade Range. It is a broad volcanic massif which towers above the surrounding hills about 30 miles north of the Columbia River. The summit is covered by a large icecap, and over a dozen glaciers pour down its flanks, most via massive and treacherous icefalls. However, the South Rib (Suksdorf Ridge) route is crevasse-free, providing one of the easier climbing routes and nicest ski runs on any of the northern Cascade volcanoes. It has over 7000 ft (2100 m) of skiable vertical in the spring, including a near-perfect 30-degree pitch for over 2500 ft (800 m) below the false summit.
