Sluiskin Mountain is located in Mount Rainier National Park about 6 miles north of Rainier. The rock of Sluiskin Mountain pre-dates Mount Rainier. The Chief is the highest summit at 7026 feet and is situated at the east end of the mountain. A saddle separates The Chief from The Squaw, 6960 feet. The Papooses are small pinnacles west of The Squaw.

Sluiskin is the name of the native American guide who helped the first successful Mt. Rainier climbing party (Hazard Stevens and P.B Van Trump) in 1870.
