- HOW TO GO
Rock Climbing in Cannon Mountain: Northwest Ridge, Wenatchee, Washington USA
Cannon Mountain is located in Stewart Range, on the West edge of the Lost World Plateu. Access to Cannon Mountain is quite challenging since there is no existing trail, taking you directly to the mountain. The route is long and brushy and you walk through old burned trees.
The top elevation of the peak is at 8638ft/2632 m and the best time to visit, is during spring. The skill level required for this climb is class II-III, and is suitable for beginners, but a good physical condition is essential. The Northwest Ridge climb is easy, offering an exciting snow climb on a remote location, with breathtaking views of the surrounding summits once you reach the top.
As you follow the ridge, there are large granite blocks with rock hard ice and you have to explore the area and avoid difficult sections. Cannon Mountain is not a popular destination for mountain climbers, due to the overall difficulty to approach it. It is though an exciting adventure with lots of exploration in an amazing scenery. Take a map and a compass, ice axe and crampons with you.
