Exhilarating Summit  Sucess!

Remember sitting on the knife-edge of the summit with a leg on either side of the mountain. Extreme exposure, but worth the experience.

Finally Forgotten  Sucess!

A long day trip, especially with having to break trail through the fall snow. Nobody went past the meadows that day except me. I shortened the trip by parking in the little pullout where the road used to go up. When I first attempted the peak, the road was still open. Ah the good old days. Enjoy the roads that still exist.

Gorgeous Hike  Sucess!

One of the more spectacular hikes I've done in the Cascades; amazing 360 views with tons of classic peaks. Route description is pretty accurate; the trail is primitive, but if you know where the route goes, it's hard to get lost. This time of year there are still a few lingering snowfields right near the summit that you'd need ice axes for; we managed to skirt around on rocks (class 3) to avoid the snow. There are two summit registers (one on the northern peak and one on the central peak); not to miss out, I did the scramble across to the middle peak for fun. To get to the standard peak is easy class 3 with minimum exposure (biggest annoyance is bushwacking); getting to the middle peak for kicks requires about 10 feet of class 4, with good handholds.

Forgotten  Sucess!

Hiked up Stillaguamish Peak with James Barlow, Becca Romig, and Sam Hahn on my birthday while on vacation in the Pac NW. James had already done Forgotten and the other two weren't as interested so I quickly did this one on the hike out. A bit of route finding on this one in order to keep the best line, but not too bad. The toughest part the scramble to the top was getting to the other two potential highpoints. Fun hike.

Nice Hike & Scramble  Sucess!

This was a very enjoyable hike and final scramble to the summit scramble. We used a rope for the final climb to the true summit; the rope was not necessary but definitely made us feel a lot better. The footholds I found and used on the north side of the technical spot were better than the butt-scooching Paul and Tim each did. Great views from the summit. A swarm of seemingly 50+ people, mostly from the "" website, was hanging out at Forgotten meadows during our descent. Apparently, does not care about wilderness restrictions for group sizes.

Solid  Sucess!

A straightforward climb with a fun little crawl to the true summit.

Good day  Sucess!

A good trip! First ride up Forgotten and not bad at all, still snow in the final gully, bring your axe.

Great little corner of the Cascades!  Sucess!

After an uneventful 2-day trip to Monte Cristo & Silver Lake following the discovery that our planned 3-day trip to Glacier Peak was lengthened by an additional ~15-20 miles (inability of the Forest Service to repair flood-damaged roads/trails), Jake & I decided to end our 3-day trip here (thanks to the guys we met in the parking lot who recommended this!!!). The fog that dampened the spirit the previous 2 days was still present at the outset, but we continued on nonetheless. When we started seeing blue near the meadows, my enthusiasm & hope were raised considerably. After taking an extended break at the bench on the ridgeline, we decided to press on & see how things went. Meadows were beautiful, but we continued on, & summited 4:38 after leaving the parking lot. Spent almost half an hour at the summit before starting the trek down. 3:04 back to the TH. Beautiful, day, hike, & summit!

Decent hike  Sucess!

Approach was fun, and especially beautiful with the slide alder and vine maple leaves turning.

On the way home...  Sucess!

Did Tomyhoi / Yellow Aster yesterday. On the way back to Portland decided to tag something short and sweet...Mount Forgotten was the perfect choice.

Third Times a Charm  Sucess!

Perfect day, good group, successful summit. Our group used line of sight between the first and second summit, with Pilchuck in the background, to determine that the first summit is the highest.

Forgotten  Sucess!

Only took 3 attempts. Easier with good weather and no snow.

Mount Forgotten  Sucess!

Took all day and was hiking out in the dark, but it was worth staying on top to watch the sunset.

Heavy snow  Sucess!

Be prepared for heavy snow if before July. This is a snowy area.

Socked in  Sucess!

Made it to the summit. Great weather until I reached the meadows. From there to the summit, not one view. It was a pretty good hike though. Best part of the trail for me was after the meadows. Very fun.

Worth every step  Sucess!

Had a killer time with a great new climbing partner. Views at the two tarns will leave you speechless. Ascending the east gully is cake. Bagging the true summit was easy, for me. Yes, it takes a certain level of commitment, but it's not nearly as bad as its reputation. For me, coming back to the false summit was easier than getting up- but neither was too difficult. Great views and a great time. Worth every step!
