Default Mount Forbes

Forbes is an awesome mountain with an equally brutal approach up a long valley with a steep and painful ascent to basecamp. We summitted in a whiteout and my Achilles Tendon was killing me on the way out. Still an awesome trip overall. I will go back for my summit view.

Fantastic, Eric. I saw Forbes from the plane on my way back from Edmonton to Vancouver and the icefield around it looks stunning, and huge!

I hope you will post again with some summit views when you return.
