Thanks to Ronald James for adding this peak.

Frisco Mountain is located in North Cascades National Park along the east boundary line. It's situated one kilometer (.6 mile) northwest of Rainy Peak. Frisco is connected to Rainy Peak by a high ridge which forms a cirque. The Lyall Glacier resides in this north cirque, which drains down to beautiful Rainy Lake in the basin below. The south aspect of the peak has 4600 feet of vertical relief above Bridge Creek which cuts below its south footing. The Pacific Crest Trail also passes along the south footing of the peak.  

It is a one day climb from the North Cascades Highway. Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 2, for information on the established climbing routes and approaches for Frisco Mountain. 

Prominence: 485 feet.
