North Klawatti Glacier lies in a cirque to the east of Austera Peak, North Cascades National Park, in the U.S. state of Washington. The glacier is approximately 1.4 mi (2.3 km) in length, .40 mi (0.64 km) in width at its widest and descends from 7,800 to 6,000 ft (2,400 to 1,800 m), where it terminates above Klawatti Lake. An arête divides North Klawatti Glacier from Klawatti Glacier to the south. The North Klawatti Glacier was one of four glaciers selected for glacier mass balance research.
