Johannesburg Mountain is on the North Cascades National Park boundary in the Cascade Pass area. The impressive north face with its steep rock, hanging glaciers, and waterfalls is the main attraction at the end of the Cascade River Road where hikers and climbers begin adventures in the Cascade Pass area. While the North Face is a challenging and dangerous climb due to avalanches, the south face involves scrambling to reach the summit.
Johannesburg Mountain's name came about as a spelling error for the Johnsburg mining claims on the north aspect of the mountain. The Silver Queen Mining and Smelting Company Company which had a large investment in the Cascade mining district in the late 1800's owned and operated the mining claim.
Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 2, for information on the established climbing routes.
