Russian Butte is located east of Mount Si and Mount Teneriffe, or about 40 miles east of Seattle, Washington, and is within the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Russian Butte is situated above the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River and this low footing gives it dramatic local relief despite its modest height. The craggy rock of Russian Butte stands out in sharp contrast to its forested neighbors when seen from vantage points in the Snoqualmie Valley like Interstate 90, Rattlesnake Ledge, or Mount Teneriffe.
Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide: Climbing and High Routes, Volume 1, for information on the feasible approach for Russian Butte.
