Blue Lake Peak

Blue Lake (Wamihaspi) Peak is the first unnamed summit south of the Liberty Bell Group. It is located .06 miles east of Blue Lake and 1.5 miles south of Washington Pass on the North Cascades Highway.

The peak has rock faces on its north and west sides, but the rock is not good. North of the saddle between the summit and the east shoulder there is a permanent snowfield that is overhung by a large cornice most of the year.
