pauleRoute Climbed: Perry Creek / FT 711 Date Climbed: May 24, 2003  Sucess!


Departed at 6:00 am. The weather was very nice and cooperative up to Stillaguamish Ridge. There are two perennial water crossings midway between the trailhead and Perry Creek Falls which had considerable runoff to navigate over. The main log crossing just above Perry Creek Falls on that day was moving enough water to require trudging through a small section of the creek that was about shin deep. It felt almost like summer, as I was already burning through twice as much water as I normally do.

Got to the east shoulder just in time for a major storm to come in and make things a little interesting. I got cold on the summit from the storm, wind, and from sweating like a pig most of the way up, so I quickly turned around to head back. As I was coming back, there were avalanches (a couple hundred feet below) me on the steep east face going off about every 10 - 15 minutes or so. My guess that by the third weekend in June, the only snow left might be on the final pitch to the summit.

RStokesRoute Climbed: Perry Creek Date Climbed: December 3, 2002  Sucess!


Still very little snow at the end of this dry fall season. The snow did start at the saddle and continued to the meadows. Some icy conditions made for interesting downclimbing from the meadows to Mt. Forgotten. After traversing the south side we continued up the slope towards the west, beneath the cliffs then on to the ridge. From there it was a snow slope and minor scrambling to the summit.

Paul Klenke & Gordon Schryer reached the summit on another outstanding 2002 fall day. This summit shall not be forgotten.

No snow on the trail all the way up to the meadows. Started way too late so we did not get to the climbers trail till 4pm. We did descend into the gully and then ascend back up to the boulder field where the ascent of the summit pinnacle begins. I am still not aware of the exact route but plan to return next year to scramble to the top.

scot'teryxRoute Climbed: Perry Creek/Snow Date Climbed: 06/10/01


Climbed to Perry Creek then on up to the meadows. We had first tracks so we didn't really know where to go, but followed the pink flags in the trees. We arrived at the meadows but did not know it till later. We had an idea of where Mt Forgotten was, but visibility was about 30 feet, so we saw nothing but pea soup. Return another day.
