Olympic Mountains

The Olympic Range is a compact cluster of high peaks, isolated on the Olympic Peninsula, the western coast of Washington state. The range occupies a small geographic area, and the mountains are not especially high, but they are steep and rugged, and provide exceptional alpine hiking, as well as technical rock and ice climbs. They rise steeply from sea level to heights approaching 8,000 feet. Snowfields and glaciers surround the higher peaks, and wild rivers have carved out steep, rugged canyons. The foothills are blanketed with thick spruce and hemlock forests, the growth of which is encouraged by the heaviest precipitation in North America, as much as 140 annual inches.
