Little Tahoma Peak Professional Review and Guide
"Little Tahoma Peak is a crumbling, craggy satellite of the ancient and formerly larger Mt. Rainier. Measuring in at 11,138 feet, Little Tahoma is taller than any of the nonvolcanic summits in the Cascade Range. The summit pyramid is an isolated, triangular pinnacle that stands 3000 feet above the ice flows — the Whitman, Fryingpan, and Ohanapecosh glaciers — at the foot of its east slope. On a fine summer weekend these gentle slopes are popular sites for swooshing telemark skiers and snowboarders. But higher up the rock is unstable, as Little Tahoma forms a wedge between the massive Ingraham and Emmons glaciers, which flow from above and undercut the peak on both sides."
