Slesse Peak is a steep rock pinnacle with multiple peaks. It is located just north of the United States border, northeast of Mount Baker (10,778 ft.). The name Slesse is a Native American (Salish) word meaning fang, a word which accurately describes the sheer, sharp peak of this mountain, which was long considered unclimbable.
