Highlights

  • Mount Daniel is the highest summit on the Cascade Range crest of Alpine Lakes Wilderness in central Washington.
  • From most vantages Mount Daniel appears to be a triple-crowned mass, but 5 summits can be identified: West Summit (7960 ft/2426 m), Middle Summit (7,959 ft/2,426 m), East Peak (7,899 ft/2,408 m), West Pyramid (7880 ft/2402 m), and Northwest Summit (7,686 ft/2,343 m).
  • Supports several glaciers, the largest of which is Lynch Glacier on the northwest slope of the mountain. Other glaciers are the West Lynch Glacier, Daniel Glacier, and the Hyas Creek Glacier. All the glaciers on Mount Daniel are thinning and becoming stagnant; West Lynch Glacier is expected to disappear in the near future.
  • The standard route to the summit starts at Salmon La Sac, passes Cathedral Rock, Peggys Pond, and then is a scramble to the summit.
