Mount Prophet

Featured photo of Mount Prophet

Mount Prophet is a rugged and remote mountain located in beautiful North Cascades National Park. It is situated in isolation west of Ross Lake and east of the Picket Range. The small Prophet sub-range rises above the Big Beaver Creek valley to its east and south, Little Beaver Creek valley to its north, and Ross Lake to its east. These deep footings give it a notable 4000 feet of prominence. The northeast cirque holds the Arctic Glacier which drains into Arctic Creek. The mountain is named for Tommy Rowland a prospector and religious fanatic of the Skagit Valley in the late 1800's. The rock of Mount Prophet is Skagit gneiss. Mount Prophet is rarely climbed due to its inaccessibility, but those who do make it to the summit are rewarded with spectacular views of the Pickets, Redoubt, Spickard, Hozomeen, Jack, and many others.

Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 3, for a complete description of the daunting climbing routes and approaches.
