|An impressive massif located on the east side of Winslow Creek and northwest of Statlu Lake. The northwest ridge of Mount Clarke massif contains the sub-peaks "Viennese" and "Recourse", which are considered separate peaks.
The standard access is via logging roads that runs along the Chehalis River. From the road, a trail runs past Statlu Lake and continues to the basin that contains Upper Statlu Lake. From here, several Class 5 routes lead to the summit. The standard route goes up the east side of the headwall and then contours west to a col on the southwest ridge. Cross the col and parallel the southeast ridge, eventually gaining the ridge crest at about 1900 m. Follow the southeast ridge to the summit. The crux is a horizontal crack just below the summit (Class 4).|
Name Notes: "In the cabin at Stump Lake a plaque records that Cliff and Betty Clarke, with their daughters aged 10 & 13, in July 1940 made a crossing from Harrison Lake, 20 mile point, via Statla (sic) Lake to Stump Lake, ascending to 5,000 feet during the process. We do not know the Clarke's but their feat deserves recognition, and we would like to suggest the name Mount Clarke for this peak." (October 1949 letter from chairman, Vancouver section Alpine Club of Canada, file F.1.39). Named after logger Cliff Clarke, who hiked through from Harrison Lake to Stave Lake.
