Point 8183 or "Joey" is a granite crag at the north end 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 Wallaby, Kangaroo Temple, and Big Kangaroo. Joey is situated 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. Joey is visible to travelers at Washington Pass, but is less conspicuous than the peaks of the Liberty Bell group and Silver Star Mountain. Prominence: 143 feet.
