      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Forbidden Peak - North Ridge 7/1/2007

Recommended Posts

Trip: Forbidden Peak - North Ridge

 

Date: 7/1/2007

 

Trip Report:

 

Boston Glacier is well filled in, many snow bridges and easy route finding. Snow is getting soft so wake up VERY early to profit any overnight crustiness, or else you may wallow and curse.

 

It is a fun day in the mountains and great conditions now - why wait until August when it will be broken up and nasty?

hey, nice -- someone put a ladder over the washout. Climbing over that thing (sans ladder) in the rain was kinda fun, though.

 

Nice trip

That's been one of my favorite outings in the Cascades. It's not that the climbing is so brilliant or it's an earthshattering route, but the total package is such a delicious trip. Did you descend the West Ridge? That way down makes for a great circumnavigation of the peak.

 

Thanks for the pics, the snowy ridge shot is just classic.

Sorry Jim, I took no summit shots and my one shot of the rock is lousy. Maybe Fern has some good ones.

 

Off, yeah we downclimbed and rapped the West Ridge. I was swearing a lot as I rapped six inches, threw the ropes, rapped six inches, threw the ropes....hah.

Let's not get all sexist up in here, even though they kick ass and probably don't smell as bad they are climberz too
