Kitling Peak

Kitling Peak is located on Ragged Ridge along the east boundary line of North Cascades National Park. Overlooking the North Cascades Highway, it's situated one mile northwest of Easy Pass, and one mile east of Mesahchie Peak. Kitling can be climbed in one day. Best weather conditions in summer, but best climbing conditions in late spring when snow still covers scree slopes. The name Kitling comes from the Chinook jargon for the word "kettle".  The Mesahchie Glacier lies on the northwest flank of the peak. 

Prominence: 523 feet.
