Bonanza West Peak: Northwest Buttress Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The tallest nonvolcanic peak in the Cascades stands out near the head of Lake Chelan. Bonanza, with its two horns and impressive glaciers, is easy to identify from locations around the range. You can see it clearly from Washington and Cascade Passes, but it sees much less traffic than either of these locations. This is a true adventure in a remote part of the range that you will want to visit more than once.

When the Holden copper mine closed in 1957 and the village was leased as a retreat by the Lutheran Church, a unique chapter in the history of Washington mountain culture began. Visiting Holden Village is one of the reasons to do this trip, and if you can afford the time you should consider spending a night or two as a guest."
