Fisher Peak is located in North Cascades National Park along the east boundary line. It's situated 1.5 mile north of Black Peak and 1.5 mile south of Graybeard Peak in the Easy Pass - Rainy Pass area. Fisher can be seen from the North Cascades Highway. 

Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 2, for information on the established climbing routes. Fred Beckey made the first ascent of Fisher Peak in 1940 via the Northwest Face. The West Ridge has become the popular route and expect exposed class 4 scrambling. Plan for 2 days to make the entire climb, with an overnight camp at Silent Lakes.  

Prominence: 720 feet.
