Torment Forbidden Traverse

Bring all your skills for this amazingly diverse route

How do you improve upon the already clas­sic For­bid­den Peak climb? By adding an ascent of Mount Tor­ment, and climb­ing a mile of snow, ice, and rock ridge in between the two peaks! The Tor­ment-For­bid­den Tra­verse (TFT) has become a very sought after and more fre­quent­ly attempt­ed alpine climb. You’ll need your entire bag of tricks of the trade of alpine climb­ing, along with some very real, sol­id skills for this one. Wild expo­sure, intri­cate mixed climb­ing, and more than enough inter­me­di­ate lev­el climb­ing to keep you atten­tive every moment makes this one of the North Cas­cades clas­sic climbs.
