A massive structure and dominant feature north of Glacier Peak. Chickamin Glacier, one of the largest non-volcanic glaciers in the state of Washington covers the north side of the mountain. South east side includes a complex rock face and south west side a smaller glacier, Dome Glacier providing a snow and ice route up to a high col, 8,560 feet. From the col, a long traverse leads to the top (Class 3). Dome Peak is often climbed as part of the Ptarmigan Traverse where it anchors the south end of the Ptarmigan Crest.

Refer to Selected Climbs in the Cascades, Vol. 1, by Potterfield and Nelson, or Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 2, for climbing route information.
