The Fin

Featured photo of The Fin

The Fin 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. The Fin anchors the extreme south end of Kangaroo Ridge, at the headwaters for the Twisp River and Cedar Creek. The Fin is not visible to travelers at Washington Pass, but a hike to Kangaroo Pass will get you a view of this granite tower.  It is situated immediately south of The Tomahawk.
