Looming dramatically above the town of Darrington, Whitehorse Mountain offers a stiff approach (a honest 6,000 feet), and a craggy, glaciated summit. It's best done in early season when the brushy approaches are covered in snow, but after avalanche danger has abated. The glacier can be close to impassible by late summer. it can be done car to car in a long day, but most parties opt for a high camp.
