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!

Winter Solo  Sucess!

Had some unfinished business with this peak. Went back today to finish it up. Hiked up to the waterfall in the dark Saturday night and camped on some snow. Got up at 4am and was moving by 5am. Made it to the summit by 9am.

Hot Day  Sucess!

Great hike with amazing views of peaks, tarns, meadows, flowers, ect... less people traffic after the meadows, little overgrown and brushy on the traverse, last pitch had some loose rock to the summit.

Great Day  Sucess!

Not sure of the date, but the year is correct. Must have been late August, because the Huckelberries were the best I have ever had. You could pick for several minutes in one spot. Also in 1987. We saw bear claw marks on a tree below the pass.

Standard Route  Sucess!

I've been up three times. Gully works but going up a little earlier is a bit easier.

Reaching the true summit  Sucess!

The last reach without ropes is interesting...

Icy Day on Forgotten  Sucess!

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.

Perry Creek and East Gully  Sucess!

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!

Forgotten  Sucess!

This was the final summit of a weekend scramble marathon.I was tired. Some of the best pictures I have came from this trip.

Route Climbed - Perry Creek/East Gully  Sucess!

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.

Corkscrew Route on Forgotten?  Sucess!

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.

Scattered Showers

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?

Snow Route Finding in late June?  Sucess!

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.

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.
