Forbidden Peak West Ridge

Intermediate Summit Climb

Locat­ed in a vig­or­ous alpine set­ting in the heart of the North Cas­cade Nation­al Park, an ascent of 8,815 foot For­bid­den Peak offers excel­lent views of the sur­round­ing peaks and the mas­sive Boston Glac­i­er and is one of the most clas­sic climbs in the park. Her­ald­ed as one of the Fifty Clas­sic Climbs in North Amer­i­ca,” our route on the West Ridge is an aspir­ing alpinist’s dream. The route con­sists of mid-fifth class climb­ing and 40°-50° snow and ice before join­ing an exposed rock ridge. Join us on this rugged North Cas­cades clas­sic for an unfor­get­table experience.

Each year we offer one sched­uled climb at a dis­count­ed rate and dur­ing the prime” of the sea­son. Oth­er­wise, all oth­er climbs can be sched­uled and priced on a cus­tom basis.
