Pinnacle Saddle resides in the Tatoosh Range, a craggy line of mountains due south of Rainier. This range sits well apart from Mount Rainier and its collection of smaller sibling summits nestled along its flank, but it offers one of the best “Mount Rainier experiences” you’ll find. The climb is steep and rugged at times, but the payoff is the best views of the big mountain’s south face you’ll ever find.
