Mount Deception: Southwest Face and Circumnavigation Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Although Mount Deception is the second highest peak in the Olympic Mountains, it gets relatively little attention as a ski mountain. However, Mount Deception can be much quicker to access for skiing than the highest peak in the range, Mount Olympus.

Royal Basin is one of the most popular areas in the Olympics; however, Mount Deception itself has a reputation for loose rock and scree during the summer climbing season, which keeps crowds away from the mountain itself."
