This Bear Mountain is located in the Chilliwack Group in the remote northern reaches of North Cascades National Park. It is situated 3 miles south of the US-Canada Border along the Chilliwack River Valley. Bear Mountain is located north of Indian Creek, south of Bear Creek, and southwest of Mount Redoubt. Any approach is long and difficult, the rock-climbing routes are very challenging, and the wilderness ambiance makes this a classic North Cascades climb. The rock of this rugged mountain is Skagit Gneiss and granodiorite with a small glacier on the north aspect of Bear Mountain.
Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 3, for complete approach and climbing route descriptions for Bear Mountain.
