Mount Seattle

Featured photo of Mount Seattle

Mount Seattle is located deep within Olympic National Park ten miles southeast of Mount Olympus. It is situated southeast of Mounts Meany and Noyes, and northwest of Mount Christie. 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. Mount Seattle stands at the head of the Elwha River valley, and precipitation on Mt. Seattle drains into the Elwha River on the north side, into the Quinault River on the south side, and into Seattle Creek on the west side.
