Description

One of the best alpine rock climbing routes in the Cascades, the west ride of the Forbidden peak (2,687m) is a great climb.

For 2 exciting days, you will get the chance to climb the Forbidden peak to its summit, where you can enjoy some spectacular views of glaciers, alpine lakes and other peaks in the Cascades.

The trip will begin at a park and ride in Seattle at approximately 7:00 am. From there, we will take an approximate 2.5 hour drive to the trail head. After that, we will hike for approximately 3 to 4 hours to our campsite. At the campsite, at some nearby rocks, we will practice several important techniques for the climb to come. Those techniques include rope management, belaying a lead climber and connecting to an alpine rock anchor. Afterwards, we will enjoy a delicious hot dinner and sleep in our tents.

On the following day, we will wake up before sunrise. After breakfast, we will hike up to the beginning of the west ridge. We will choose our climbing route based on weather and snow conditions. From there, we will climb approximately 8 pitches to the top of the Forbidden peak. After you’ve enjoyed the view, we will then rappel back down.

The ascent will be challenging. As a result, it is required that participants have previous rock climbing experience. You should also have prior mountaineering experience, and be in good physical condition.

A great climb that will yield great views, this 2 day ascent of the west ridge of the Forbidden peak is a fantastic adventure. To enjoy it for yourself, just send me a request.

I can also take you on a one day climbing adventure on the Tooth, which is also located in the Cascades of Washington.

Sandeep and his wife, Jasmine, are lovely guides! We did a 1 day intro to rock climbing excursion with them and we had a great time! They communicated well and provided us with a fun and safe day of climbing. They chose routes based on our experience and taught us a lot. I highly recommend hiring Miyar Adventures. We have already shared their info with friends and family.

Five days of awesome is all I can say. Glen our instructor and guide was extremely knowledgeable. I had previous glacier mountaineering experience and his techniques were so much more efficient than what I had been taught. To top it off we had a great summit day.

Whole group summited! Huge thanks to the guides for helping us all get there! It's certainly not an easy climb, but the entire experience was fantastic. Especially loved the snow skills training on the second day. Lots of fun was had practicing the self arrest & team arrest. The team arrest training was a huge confidence builder to see that I wasn’t going to take the entire team down if I fell The lead guide (Glen) was fabulous. You can tell he really enjoys sharing his passion for the outdoors with the guests on his trip. Folks in the store are super helpful as well. Sandeep (owner) is great, and have talked with him in the store & via email several times to get advice. Great pre-trip guidance (including a meeting the night before the climb to make sure you have all the gear you need & nothing you don’t), and you can tell how much Sandeep cares about making sure every guest has a great experience. Lots of reasonably priced gear rental options available here as well if you aren’t sure if mountaineering is for you. Considering a Kili trip while I’m still in good hiking shape, and they’ll be the first place I look at if I decide to book.

I took the Mountaineering skills course (5 days) in Baker. I learned so much about Glacier travel, rope management, crevasse rescue, and much more! Glen, our guide was awesome and highly knowledgeable. We also got to summit Mt. Baker during the course which was the most magical part! I HIGHLY recommend them!

Myself and my daughter climbed Mt. Baker with Miyar Adventures via Easton Glacier route, Simon was our guide. The whole experience was epic in many ways. Simon's knowledge is excellent, I would trust him 100% in any situations that may come up on the mountain. We learned a lot and it was fun. The overall organization from Miyar was great (including informational emails from Jake and communication with Sandeep). Great company that I would choose again in a heartbeat.
