Clark Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"The term DaKobed — meaning “Great Parent” — is the Native American name for Glacier Peak. It is also the name of the compact, 11-mile sub-range anchored to Glacier Peak that forms a topographic crescent from the White Chuck and Suiattle glaciers on the west to the Napeequa River on the east, and from the Suiattle River on the north to the White River on the south. This dramatic crest meets the definition of a small sub-range by its compactness and continuity of summit terrain, for it is continuously high with no pass lower than 7000 feet. The DaKobed forms a deviation of the Cascade Crest from its general northsouth axis to an eastward trend. But as in most other parts of the sector, due to intense alpine glaciations the entire sub-range is precipitous on the north and east while sloping and moderate on the south."
