North Palisade is the fourth highest mountain in California. It rises from the dramatic Palisade Crest, which holds five of the Sierra Nevada's eleven fourteeners. North Palisade is the highest of this group, and is consequently the most popular climb. Commonly referred to as North Pal, the mountain's neighboring peaks are Thunderbolt Peak (immediately northwest) and Mount Sill (due east). This entire region has some of the finest rock climbing in the Sierra Nevada.
