Old Snowy is probably the easiest glaciated peak to climb in the NW. It's not as well known as St. Helens or South Sister, and thus gets a lot fewer climbers. If you are looking for a gentle approach and non-technical ascent in a beautiful area, this is your peak. It's in the aptly named Goat Rocks area, between Mts. Adams and Rainier. Bring the binoculars for mountain goat watching.
