Mount Spickard is a 8,979-foot (2,737 m) mountain peak in the North Cascades, a mountain range in the U.S. state of Washington. Located just 2 miles (3.2 km) south of the Canada-U.S. border, it is part of the Chilliwack Group, a subrange of the Skagit Range which is part of the North Cascades. It is composed mainly of gneiss and is part of two major drainage basins: that of the Skagit River and Fraser River.
With a topographic prominence of over 4,700 feet (1,400 m), Mount Spickard is one of the most prominent peaks in the state, and has two minor summits. The mountain was named for a climber who fell to his death while ascending another nearby mountain peak. However, the first to ascend Mount Spickard was Walter B. Reaburn, in 1904.
Mount Spickard rises to 8,980 feet (2,740 m) in the northernmost extreme of North Cascades National Park, making it the 5th highest peak in the park and the 16th highest in the state. Its prominence of 4,779 feet (1,457 m) is the ninth-greatest in the state and makes it the 70th-most prominent peak in the United States. It is located 19 miles (31 km) northwest of Jack Mountain, the nearest higher peak.
