Great Climb  Sucess!

Great trip with my friends Steve H, Chris, and Gary. A lightning light show the first night that then cleared. We up the fairly steep snow couloir to the col, and climbed in two groups of two. We simuclimbed a lot, and I lead the crux pitch (5.5-5.6?) as I had rock shoes on. Very fun rock. Two of us bailed at the false summit (west summit?) as we heard lightning in the distance.

Great route  Sucess!

West ridge, with my baby. Incredible mountain/route. Her first: backpacking trip; ice axe/crampons usage; glacier crossing; unplanned bivy :) True alpine. Hard to beat the North Cascades for alpine ambiance...

Up I Go

2016-08-06 via West Ridge as part of Torment-Forbidden Traverse (Solo up and down)
09/20/2014 Climbed with Rob via the West Ridge car to car. We had a slow relaxing blue bird day. Not a cloud anywhere.

East "ridge"  Sucess!

I'm a peak-bagger, so when fresh snow made the Torment-Forbidden traverse too treacherous, I looped around to scramble the easier, but still snow-covered walk-off route. Trip report.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Solo on the West Ridge. Loose on the bypass gully and less than stellar holds. Ridge itself was fun and exposed.

fun day

Adam and I tried it in a one day push. We got within 200m of summit via W ridge but will have to go back (for traverse?). Great route with awesome guy. great exposure!
got lost finding trail on route out and my wife was close to calling a rescue when she hadn't heard from us too late...

Fun Route  Sucess!

Great way to finish the endless summer of 2012.

better luck next time

Attempt with Faith. After doing the grueling approach in the rain the previous day/eve, camp & mountain were socked in the next morning. Didn't clear up until 11ish, & we both decided that would be way too late of a start. Boston Basin in beautiful, at any rate, & I plan to be back :)

Great Climb via West Ridge  Sucess!

I agree with Matt's statement. The route was pretty mellow but was a lot of fun. But I admit I was a bit tired when it was over. The glacier is very melted out, now it's getting to the point where the crevasses reach rock bottom. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the west ridge in late season. Not much snow on the approach glacier. We climbed the western most scratch gully to the west of the major snow gully due to all the snow melted out. This was class 3 and 4. Contrary to what is said below, the gully was quite nice and NOWHERE near as loose as we were told. A few cams made it easy while simul-climbing up. I never thought the climbing on the ridge itself was harder than 5.5

east to west c2c  Sucess!

incredible route (east ridge) and setting. highly recommended, amazing alpine route with excellent exposure. west ridge downclimb was nice too, rapping not necessary. Labor day 2011. One party on west ridge, no one else on mountain. c2c ~14 hours

12 Hours West Ridge  Sucess!

C2C. Lot's of people on the ridge unfortunately. The descent via the ledges was horrible what a pile of cat litter. Be careful with people rapping above you. Good chance you'll be dodging missiles!
