Tupshin Peak and Devore Peak Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Tupshin and Devore Peaks are an eye-catching twosome along the Devore Creek Trail, which winds its way up from Lake Chelan toward the Cascade Crest. Because the two mountains are situated along the same stream, this trip is best done as a oneway journey from Stehekin to Holden. The trip through these villages makes for a charming blend of backwoods human contact and lonesome high alpine climbing. While Tupshin is ragged and spiked, Devore is blocky and bulky. Meaning “needle” in the Chinook language, Tupshin requires technical skills (class 5) to reach the top. In contrast, many parties do not use a rope on Devore. The final leg of the trip from Tenmile Pass requires some backcountry navigation along a short “missing link” that crosses a creek and connects with a newly maintained trail to complete this unofficial overland route from Stehekin to Holden."
