Since the topography of Mount Rainier is very jagged and uneven, the glacier is warped and twisted during its descent northward down to its terminus at about 11,000 feet (3,400 m). From there, the glacier ice falls off the cliff and tumbles down the steep Mowich Face) Edmunds Glacier (medium-sized glacier on Mount Rainier in Washington. The glacier lies on the western flank of the volcano below the steep, rocky Mowich Face and Sunset Face.)
