The Majestic Hozomeens - North Side (Winter)
This peak is #20 in Prominence List for Washington .Located just S of International Boundary and E of head of Ross Lake. This peak has three summits. The formidable black towers of the summit can be clearly seen from almost any highpoint in Manning Park. Although from the east, the formidable black tower of the south summit may appear to be higher, the north summit is actually higher.

Name Notes: The peak was first named when attempted in 1859 by Henry Custer. In the survey notes, he noted that the Indians called it "Hozameen" (with an "a"). However the survey spelled it Hozomeen (with an 0). Today, the Canadian topo maps spell the adjoining ridge "Hozameen Range", but the American topo maps and most guidebooks spell it as Hozomeen.

Route Summaries exist for this mountain, but are only available to paid members.
