Wallaby Peak is a granite peak on Kangaroo Ridge, which is a three mile long north-south trending massif in the North Cascades immediately east of Washington Pass. Several other peaks on the massif keep with the kangaroo theme with names like Big Kangaroo, Kangaroo Temple, and Joey. Wallaby Peak is located at the head of Early Winters Creek, which drains into the Methow River, which drains into the Columbia River, on the way to the Pacific Ocean. Wallaby is visible to travelers at Washington Pass, but is less conspicuous than the peaks of the Liberty Bell group and Silver Star Mountain. It is situated immediately northeast of Kangaroo Pass, and from the pass a scramble can be made up the southwest ridge. There is also a 5.9 climbing route on the north face.
Refer to Fred Beckey's "Cascade Alpine Guide, Vol. 3" for complete information on the climbing routes for Wallaby Peak.
Prominence: 475 feet.
