This peak is #47 on the Height List for Washington . This peak is #14 in Prominence List for Washington .Remmel Mountain is a big but gentle massif of quarried white granite in Pasayten Wilderness, Okanogan National Forest. It was once crowned with a forest service lookout built in the 1930s. The lookout was subjected to heavy lightning strikes that forced its closure. A trail to the summit traverses the mountain's SE slopes through large granite blocks.

The eastern approach up Four Point Creek was burned in the 1930s to timberline. Only a few larch stands escaped the inferno. The trail to the old lookout leaves the Coleman Ridge Trail just below one of these stands about 1km west of the Four Point Lake Trail. (It is the second trail after Four Point Lake. The first trail deadends at a lake in Remmel's east bowl.)

The western approach from Andrews Pass to the west burned around 2001. From the pass the summit is an easy scramble.

The north side is protected by high battlements with large scree fans and loose gullies.
