The Chimney Rock massif is located in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness designated area of Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. It is situated on the spine of the Cascade crest, and also happens to be on the King County-Kittitas County boundary line, approximately half-way between Stevens Pass and Snoqulamie Pass. There are two summits on the massif, and three glaciers around it. On the north side, Chimney Rock shares the Overcoat Glacier with Overcoat Peak. On the south side, the Chimney Glacier, with the Lemah Mountain massif just south along the crest. Chimney Rock is the second highest peak in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, (second only to Mt. Daniel). It is a demanding class 5 technical climb with no easy route to the top, and takes 2-3 days to complete.
Refer to Fred Beckey's "Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 1" for information on climbing routes.
