Thanks to Terrill Thompson for adding this peak.

Exelsior Peak is a small peak relative to the higher mountains of the North Cascades, but its ease of access and relative isolation makes it a popular climb, as it provides outstanding views of Mount Baker and the high peaks of the North Cascades and Canadian Border Range.

Thanks to Terrill Thompson for this description.
