Crystal Peak is located deep in the heart of Olympic National Park, in the center of the Olympic mountain range. That it remained unclimbed until 1976 is a testament to its remoteness. Crystal Peak is situated immediately west of the Anderson massif, and may even be considered part of it. Crystal is also north of Chimney Peak. Crystal Peak is named for the crystal materials (quartz and silicates) embedded in the rock along the ridges.
Prominence: 896 feet.
Refer to "Climber's Guide to the Olympic Mountains" by Olympic Mountain Rescue for information on approaches and climbing routes.
