Thanks to theyogiclimber for adding this peak.

Rocky Peak is located in the northern part of Olympic National Park. It is situated east of Mount Angeles on Klahhane Ridge. The view from the summit provides a grand vista into the heart of the Olympic mountains, including Mt Olympus to the southwest, and north across the Straight of Juan De Fuca to Victoria on Vancouver Island. Rocky Peak dominates the skyline from the nearby town of Port Angeles, and can be picked out by the eye from as far away as Victoria, British Columbia. While modest in height at 6218 feet, its location 8 miles from sea-level saltwater shores gives it dramatic topographic relief. The popular Hurricane Ridge Road skirts the south slope footing of Rocky Peak.
