Mount Stuart is one of the highest, most distinctive non-volcanic peaks in the Cascades. Its gigantic summit wedge is supported by three prominent ridges, with many steep faces and glaciers. Perhaps the most powerful sight is the northeast face, whose sheer granite wall towers above the Ice Cliff Glacier, a 1400-foot vertical ice wall.
