Forbidden Couloir Conditions

Recommended Posts

Hey all...anyone have a recent bead on the condition of the couloir access to Forbidden's West Ridge? Thinking of taking an alpine novice out but only if the couloir is in good shape. As always, thanks in advance!

 

Cheers,

 

Troy

Thanks Alasdair! Great pics as always. When you were up there, how was the exit off the snow to the rock at the top?

There is no exit to rock. I was snow until you get to the ridge. Thats the way it was two weeks ago. I will update on Monday. Heading to the N. ridge tomorrow.

The couloir is OK right now, but not for long. There is a section with a steep traverse over a bad runout and a fairly narrow snow bridge just as you enter the couloir. Above that it is cruiser up to the scramble section to the ridge.
