Thanks to Ronald James for adding this peak.

Double Peak is located in the east central portion of Mount Rainier National Park, north of the Ohanapecosh River and west of Chinook Creek, where the two converge. The southwest peak is 6,199 feet and the northwest peak is slightly lower in elevation, and the two rocky spires look somewhat alike. It is situated 2 miles southeast of Cowlitz Chimneys, and west of Shriner Peak. Double Peak is on the west side of the spine of the Cascade crest. Double Peak can be seen from Highway 123 south of Cayuse Pass on the west flank of Shriner Peak, as well as from Highway 410 below Chinook Pass.

Double Peak is not a technical ascent, however there is no easy approach from the nearest road, so it's rarely climbed. Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 1, for information on the approach and climbing route.

Prominence: 759 ft
