Seven Fingered Jack is the 14th highest peak in the state of Washington. It is located between Mount Fernow and Mount Maude in the Entiat Range, a sub-range of the Cascades. It has several craggy granite summits which were called the Entiat Needles before A.H. Sylvester gave it its present name. Seven Fingered Jack is one of the least technical 9000 foot peaks in the North Cascades.
Access is via the Spider Meadow Trail until it crosses Leroy Creek, and then follow the Leroy Creek Trail as it climbs relentlessly to campsites in Leroy Creek Basin. Then hike meadows and scramble talus of the southwest slope to reach the true summit. The summit of Seven Fingered Jack offers views of Bonanza Peak, Fernow, Fortress, Glacier Peak, and Mt Maude, among many others.
Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 2, for route descriptions to the summit, and to the minor summit crags of Seven Fingered Jack.
