The undisputed king of the Cascade volcanoes, Mt. Rainier dominates the entire Puget Sound and Central Washington landscape. It is the state’s highest peak and is the tallest volcano in the contiguous United States (California’s Mt. Shasta is 14,161'). The massive hulk shimmers above the Seattle skyline, often shrouded in clouds but at other times brilliantly looming in the atmosphere. But do not be deceived: this colossal mountain creates its own weather, is highly dangerous, and deserves your utmost respect. Yet, for such a commanding icon, many fledgling climbers can accomplish the easiest routes up the volcano.
