geoseanIcy Day on Forgotten  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2008

geosean

Three inches of new snow over the top of verglas made for an interesting descent to the saddle west of the peak, and up the gully to the summit, great cool clear fall day for climbing though.

First hike I led for Seattle Backpackers meetup group. I was glad there were only 5 of us. Perry Creek Falls was more creek than falls due to our unusually warm summer. Had a little difficulty finding the path to the summit, but fortunately the only other hikers we encountered all day came up just as we were finishing lunch at the meadows and pointed us in the right direction. Really enjoyed the long traverse of the last mile and the scramble up the gully. I prefer rock to loose scree scrambling, but this was easier than the rock scramble 2 weeks earlier at Mt. Aix. Only stayed at the summit long enough to sign the register and snap a couple photos before the exposure unnerved us enough to descend. Went back the way we came via the gully, much to the dismay of one member of the party, who felt (correctly) that there must be an easier way. But moments later I was forgiven for my choice of route when... surprise! Delight! We spotted a patch of snow on Glacier Peak in the perfect shape of a heart!

Hey, this was fun! Of course the weather could have been a little better (after a clear, dry summer). Some minor route finding issues. Fellow climbers we encountered very helpful - and prepared! - hooch, hot food, musical instruments. We had what amounted to a party in the bowl below the summit. Ya meet the darndedest people up in the mountains.

osatrikCorkscrew Route on Forgotten?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 1999

Yeah, I know, the Corkscrew Route is really on Sloan (to the east). However, Forgotten can be done similiarly, if not as aesthetically. Instead of going to the east from the saddle, head across the talus fields on the west. Curve around the north side of the mountain and come up the reasonably pleasant north gully with some minor scrambling. This route also adds additional scrambling at the summit. Its a bit longer, and trades talus for bushwhacking.

Some nice thunder showers on the way up the Perry Creek Basin but it cleared up for a nice view in the meadows. Wonderful vistas! We made the steep snow traverse to the east side to discover the scramble gullies filled in with snow. When am I finally going to learn to always bring my axe?

Phil DeckerSnow Route Finding in late June?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2006

Phil Decker

Lots of snow this last winter
9.5 Hours Car to Car
Route finding in the snow took some time.
Had the summit to ourselves as all other groups turned around?
Not sure why they did.

Note:
Keep heading E/NE traversing around Forgotten (up and E/NE of the small drainage break area w/ the big rock - you’ll see it) until you reach the flats and head up the left gulley. You traverse all the way to the East side of Forgotten.

One of the easiest summits after snow melt with spectacularly rewarding views toward both the south and north portions of the Mountain Loop Highway. Easy class 2 scramble to a very narrow pinpoint of a summit. Remember sitting astride the summit with each leg in a seperate valley watershed.

Tried to get up this Last November but got turned around due to icy conditions. Don't know how in the world the 6 feet of scrambling could be rated class 3. Nice Hike. Views were limited due to BC fires.

After a three-year hiatus, team Magellan and Quetzalcoatl (formerly Vasco de Gama) peak bag again! This is a very underrated hike. It's not a fast trail, being very rooty, and rocky. It starts with a nice open valley traverse. Colors will be better in a week or two. Cross above some falls, and head up through timber. You top out in a very picturesque meadow, complete with marmot bathtub, and stellar views of Glacier Peak. Feeling the pull, we started down the climber’s path to Forgotten. It drops and drops and traverses and traverses. At some point on the SE side of the mountain there are multiple paths. Try to stay on the high one for the most direct route. At some point we doubled back and ended up on the ridge. (Not the correct move.) Eventually we relocated the main path and continued. It gets steeper, rounding to the NE side. Up a scree gully, a few more steep steps, and the 6005' summit is bagged. The Mountaineers register is almost full! Lots of fog let the surrounding peaks play hide and seek. Dakobed was freshly coated, but no snow on any of the surrounding hills. A gorgeous late summer day, with a little more work than expected. Class 2 max, no exposure. R/T 11 miles, 4100' cumulative gain, 3:45 up, 2:15 down.

Good day to hit Forgotten. The temp stayed under 90 degrees, and the sky was clear. No water in the meadows, but a small stagnant pond still existed on the upper basin. The only drawback was the dreaded scree on the final pitch to the summit.

I met up with a couple at the TH from the Snohomish County Rescue Team that were out training their dog. We heard nothing but rescue calls and dispatches all day long on their ham radios. Shortly after hitting the summit, a rescue helicopter flew right by us to do a rescue at Round Lake near Mt. Ziob. Afterwards, another rescue team came in another helicopter went to perform a rescue on Glacier Peak.

Have wanted to climb this one since this picture was posted on summitpost. Started driving from Portland at 4 am and after some gas breaks (my truck is a gas hog) and one Egg McMuffin break, hit the trail about 9 am. Got to Perry Creek Falls in an hour and the meadows some time before noon. Took some photos from the ridge and then met the only other summit party on Forgotten that day on the climbers trail to the east side. I was about 10 feet off the trail and they politely corrected me. :- ) Tarn at the base of the gully is really low, not much water left up there. Thanks to this picture by Klenke I knew which gully to head up and was on the summit at 1 pm. Guess Beckey's book is right about it taking 4 hours. Picked some blueberries in the Meadows on the descent. Got back home about 10:30 pm and had blueberry pancakes the next morning for breakfast.



Hardest part of the climb was the drop down from the Meadows to the climbers trail:lots of steep loose dirt and rock, was holding on to trees to get down it. Other than that, it's just steep Class 2. Beautiful mountain and great hike. Now I know what all the fuss is about with the North Cascades. Endless pointy peaks everywhere. Just made me want to go back soon and start climbing the rest of them................................

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.
