List Description

There are 39 counties in Washington, and their high points make up the most serious collection of alpine challenges for county highpointers of any state except Alaska. The big volcanoes--Rainier, Adams, Baker, and Glacier Peak--are actually easier to climb than rocky, remote, and rugged giants like Bonanza, Buckner, and Olympus. Throw in a class-4 rock climb (Big Horn), more monster Cascade summits (Daniel, North Gardner), a few forested logging-road points in the southwest, flat farmland points in the east, and other random mountains, and you have a murderer's row line-up of peaks.


  • By 1995 I had a self-researched verision of this list, with 32 of the 39 points correct.
  • Book County High Points by Andy Martin; list compiled 1993 by Andy Martin, reviewed by Steve Fry, Ken Jones, and John Roper.
