Advanced climbers only! The Torment Forbidden Ridge traverse is spectacular and should be on most advanced climbers must do list! This route climbs both Torment and Forbidden peaks while throwing in a mile of exposing ridge line traversing. We will approach the climb from the Boston Basin area as we head for Mt. Torment. After taking in the views of the route ahead we’ll make our descent from Mount Torment, eventually reaching the base of our traverse between the two peaks. Our party will climb until darkness as we scope out several spots along the ridge to bivy. Spending the night on an alpine ridge under the stars in unforgettable. The climb ends on the uber-classic West Ridge of Forbidden.
When the weather conditions are settled, the Torment-Forbidden Traverse is one of the best climbs in the range. Rock climbing ability up to 5.6 required with a light overnight pack.
