"Robinson Mountain is a mammoth peak that is visible from many distant viewpoints in the Pasayten Wilderness and North Cascades National Park. Swaths from avalanches sweep down from the crest over 4000 feet to Robinson Creek. Even though the northwest face is precipitous and cliffy, the southwest face is mild, with snow gullies from the summit that in summer expose dry expanses of talus and scree. The geography here is not one of glaciated monster crags, yet is dramatic, with stony ridges and huge U-shaped glacial-trough valleys. Robinson Creek is a main thoroughfare into the Pasayten Wilderness, and it is a favorite with horse people, especially in the fall hunting season. Yet the summer is lonesome, and the high country above timberline is empty even when the hunters are stalking below."
