Meant to encompass Silver Star Peak, as well as the Wine spires and connected peaks, this area sits to the East of Washington Pass in the beautiful North Cascades. Primarily a summer rock climbing destination, this season ranges from mid-June to late September. Great skiing and some winter climbing can be done other times of the year, although access is problematic.

Getting There 

Hwy 20, open seasonally, provides access to the West side of Silver Star Peak and the Wine Spires. Other areas can be reached via Varden Creek, Cedar Creek, or Willow Creek, via trails or bushwacking.
