Mount Meany is located deep within Olympic National Park. It is situated seven miles southeast of Mount Olympus, and immediately south of Mount Queets, and north of Mount Noyes and Mount Seattle. It's barely visible from the vistor center on Hurricane Ridge, weather permitting. It's located in the Queets-Quinault group, so it's a remote climb requiring several days of wilderness navigation, but is not a technical climb. Expect a snow and rock scramble. Weather systems coming off the Pacific Ocean will also affect difficulty, but on a clear day the views are incredible. Mount Meany drains into the Queets River on the west side, and into the Elwha River on the east side, and is situated at the headwaters of both rivers.
Mount Meany was named to honor Edmond S. Meany, who was one of the University of Washington's most notable history professors. Meany was also a botanist, State Representative, and in his later years a mountain climber. He served as the president of the Mountaineers climbing club from 1908 until his death.
