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.
