North America, United States, Washington—Cascade Mountains, "Halleluja Peak"

"Halleluja Peak.” This 7150-foot peak in Cascade Pass country, a mile southeast of Trapper Lake, has occasionally been referred to as the west peak of Glory Mountain, but the first ascent party of Ursula Wiener, Jim Whitcomb, Bob Briggs and me on October 3, 1965 decided it should have the more appropriate name of "Halleluja Peak.” From a high camp at the west end of Trapper Lake, we traversed the south side of the lake about ½ mile and ascended the prominent bushy gully to a 5850-foot saddle. A gully about ¼ mile farther east ends in a large vertical rotten chimney, impractical for access to the ridge. From the saddle an easterly traverse of a mile, usually on the ridge crest, leads to the easy summit.
