Mount Stimson is notable for its large, steep rise above local terrain. For example, its northwest face rises over 6,200 feet (1,900 m) from Nyack Creek in only 1.8 miles (2.9 km). This makes it "truly a monster of a mountain." It is also notable for its isolation; it is one of the farthest peaks from a roadhead in the park.
