The American Border Peak is a mountain immediately south of the border between Canada and the United States in the North Cascades in Washington State , which has a corresponding peak, the Canadian Border Peak , separated only by a pass immediately north of the border. It is located within the Mount Baker Wilderness , which is part of the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest , near the North Cascades National Park . It is known for its tall, steep relief; however, its partially weathered rocks make it less attractive to climbers than the nearby Slesse Mountain .
