Thanks to Ronald James C. for adding this peak.

Mount Sefrit is located in the Mount Baker Wilderness, just barely outside the boundary of North Cascades National Park. Sefrit can be prominently seen from the Mount Baker Ski area and by tourists visiting the Heather Meadows/Artist Point area at the end of the Mount Baker Highway, although it's overshadowed and overlooked by its close proximity to giants Mount Shuksan and Mount Baker. Sefrit is connected to Ruth Mountain via the Nooksack Ridge, which limits its prominence at 1551 feet. However, Sefrit has 4000-feet deep valleys surrounding it with Ruth Creek to its east and Nooksack River to its west. Spectacular views of Mount Shuksan's north face from the summit. The mountain is named for Frank Ira Sefrit (1867-1950), the managing editor and publisher of the Bellingham Herald newspaper for almost 40 years.

Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 3, for a complete accounting of the established routes on Mt. Sefrit.
