Mount Cruiser is located in the southeast corner of Olympic National Park where it straddles the boundary line of the park and the Mount Skokomish Wilderness. It is situated southwest of Mt. Skokomish, on the northeast end of Sawtooth Ridge. The ascent is as technically difficult as the Olympic Mountains have to offer. No scrambling to the summit, minimum class 5 rock climbing on good basalt rock, with even more technical route options. Early in the season expect steep snow, crampons and ice axe recommended.
Prominence: 1104 feet.
Refer to Olympic Mountains: A Climbing Guide, by Olympic Mountain Rescue, for information on the various established climbing routes on Mount Cruiser. Early editions of this book featured Mount Cruiser on the cover.
