Sperry Peak is located in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest near Barlow Pass along the Mountain Loop Highway. The southwest slope is the easiest route done in one day, whereas the north flank is steep and precipitous. The striking northeast face rises 4000 feet in sharp relief above the Stillaguamish River Valley. Sperry is named for Dick Sperry a Silverton prospector in the late 1800's. Rock is metamorphised sandstone shale, and conglomerate.

Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 2, for information on all the established routes on Sperry Peak.
