Goode Mountain, Storm King, and Mt. Logan are some of the largest monster crags in the North Cascades. This Stehekin Group forms the backbone of the Cascade Crest amid surrounding ice-clad spires. Goode Mountain dominates the entire wave of mountains between the head of Lake Chelan and the Skagit River, but is so tucked away in the wilderness that it is virtually hidden from view from the surrounding valleys. Its northeast buttress forms a long, wellknown, intermediate rock-climbing route to the horn-shaped summit. But the southwest face of Goode has blocky breaks that provide a less technical route to the top. Situated between Park Creek Pass and Goode Mountain, Storm King is less massive, yet is another local titan. The location of the actual summit can cause some confusion.
