Big Snagtooth is located east of Washington Pass in the North Cascades Range. It is situated south of Silver Star Mountain and east of Big Kangaroo, and considered part of the Methow Mountains, which are the section of Cascades west of the Methow River and east of Lake Chelan. Big Snagtooth is ranked 93rd highest peak on the Washington State Top 100 list. Big Snagtooth is the southern climax of Snagtooth Ridge, where fanciful sharp granite spires and towers would be popular with climbers and hikers were they not so difficult to reach. Plenty of solitude in this area of outstanding alpine scenery and excellent granite rock climbing opportunities.
