Description

As you enter Boston Basin, the Aiguille de l'M is the cockscomb dividing the high Forbidden basin from Torment basin and the Voodoo Glacier. And yes, it was named by a mountain guide for its striking similar appearance to a much larger aiguille in France. This small summit is not in the Cascade guidebooks, but with its position and relatively easy North Ridge it must be assumed to have been summited relatively early by alpinists.

Getting There

Take the climbers trail from Cascade River Road to Boston Basin. The Aiguille is easily identified.
