Racing Down the West Ridge of Forbidden Peak
Taken July 28, 2013 on our way down Forbidden Peak. Weather was questionable, we were both just about out of food, and had a short amount of day light left. Above Mark is the Torment Forbidden Traverse with the Triad in the background. We barely made the rappels before dark but got a bit lost on sketchy water fall slabs. Many hours later we arrived at the trailhead at 2:30 a.m.
