Hoot Owl

Hoot Owl is located in North Cascades National Park along the east boundary line. It is the unofficial descriptive name for a 200-ft prominent high point along the ridge between Black Peak and Repulse Peak. It's situated immediately north of Black Stax (Pt. 8395') approximately 1/2 mile northeast of Black Peak, 1/2 mile southeast of Repulse Peak, and west of Moustache Mountain (7215'). Hoot Owl can be seen from the North Cascades Highway at the Swamp Creek turnout. The South Peak is the true summit at 7960+ feet elevation. The North Peak is 7920+ feet. There are two small glacier remnants on either side of Hoot Owl. First ascent by John Roper who named the peak and also made many other first ascents in the North Cascades.
