Ives Peak is a glaciated peak in the Goat Rocks area between Mts. Adams and Rainier. Bring the binoculars for mountain goat watching! If you care to, you can combine this peak with it's neighbor, Old Snowy, for a short traverse that has some modest technical challenges. If you are looking for a gentle approach and non-technical ascent in a beautiful area, this is your peak.
