Dinner in Boston Basin
Dan & JBerg
The "other" Sharkfin col is up the snow gully
Scrambling to the notch
The N. Ridge of Forbidden, from the notch
Lower N. Ridge, from the notch
Crossing the Boston Glacier, Buckner N Face
Looking up at the E. Ridge of Forbidden
Boston Glacier, Buckner, Sharkfin, etc.
Dan and I reach the saddle to the Forbidden Glacier
First view of the NW face... and the start of the NW face of the N ridge on the lower left (all but the completion of the snow/ice part of the route is hidden from this view)... as well as the cool-looking spurs to the right, first climbed by a Skoog, I think.
Getting a drink on the saddle...
Torment's NE flank...
Eldo and Moraine Lake
The NW Face. Our route will be up the long ridge coming down from the very summit. Access on the other side several 100 feet up. Go very wide around the toe to avoid crevasse hell. Early season access might be feasable up this side up over the snowpatch to the flat part of the ridge... Also visible is the rappel access to the upper Forbidden glacier from Forbidden's West ridge notch...
Long way down for a swim...
Finally on the ridge. On the flat part, looking up towards the crux.
Upper part of the ridge. Awesome moderate climbing. Flat part of ridge visible way below...
Forbiddent - Torment traverse
Getting near the summit...
