Very nice climb this year. Lots of snow right up to the col. Too bad we did it in the fog... no views!

This is one of the best little climbs in the area, especially for new folks to alpine climbing in the range.

Was hiking in to climb, SF, Sahale and Forbidden the when we heard about the deaths on SF. Gave us all a uneasy feeling. Decided to forgo SF. Hve not been back since.

Bagged as part of a larger trip including Forbidden Peak two days earlier. Nice solid rock climbing, good weather aside from a somewhat brisk wind.

Beautiful summer day in the Cascades! Descent was a little tricky as we rapped straight down the face instead of descending via the standard route.

Some enjoyable climbing on solid granite. The approach gully was the crux of the climb, loose with an exposed traverse across hard snow.

Climbed Sharkfin Tower after climbing Sahale Peak from the Quien Sabe Glacier. Amazing views of the Boston Glacier on the otherside of the notch. Easy climb, with some exposure near the top.

Easy climbing over flowing granite. Pitch two is definitely the gem.

Summited around 2 pm after spending the night on the Sahale - Boston Col. We knocked off Sahale in the morning and then descended down to Sharkfin Tower along the Quien Sabe Glacier. We climbed moderate fifth class rock around the moat at the base of the snow gully and then gained access to the snow half a pitch above. The quality of the rock on the Southeast Ridge was great, as were the views of Buckner, Sahale, Forbidden, and Eldorado.

Great climb.
