South Ridge T 5.4 4a 12 IV 10 VD 3c
Torment-Forbidden Traverse T 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b Steep Snow

Description

Rugged peak on the far west side of the Boston Basin area (technically Torment Basin is separate). Forms the beginning of the popular Torment-Forbidden Traverse.

Getting There

From Boston Basin, traverse West along snow (early season) or talus past a prominent cliff band marking the end of Boston Basin, into Torment Basin. Follow a faint trail up a 3rd/4th class gulley, and down a similar gulley to find a suitable crossing for the creek. Meander up easy slabs and eventually up the Taboo glacier to the SE Face or S. Ridge route, marking the start of the Torment-Forbidden traverse. Access via the SE or NE is also possible, though presumably better with snow coverage and adequate flotation.
