Azurite Peak is a double-summit massif in the Okanogan Forest, one mile northeast of Azurite Pass. It's situated at the triple shared boundary of three counties: Whatcom, Skagit, and Okanogan. The south peak is claimed to be slightly higher than the north peak, but neither has an official elevation yet. It's somewhere between 8400 and 8440 feet and tied for 75th on the Washington State Top 100. There is a small pocket glacier on the eastern slope. The Pacific Crest Trail makes its way along the south and east footings of Azurite Peak. The approach is long and the scrambling difficult with loose rock, allow two days.
Refer to Fred Beckey's "Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 3" for complete approach and climbing route information.
