Hello everybody. This is Jake calling in from Boston Basin up in the North Cascades checking in after a great day of mountain adventure. Eric Frank wanted to let everybody know that they are working well on Torment-Forbidden Traverse and they were on the top of Torment, I think around noon today. Nice work fellas. Thomas Greene and I are out with James, James and Steve up out on Sharkfin Tower today and heading for the West Ridge tomorrow. So cross your fingers for good weather and we will be checking in tomorrow afternoon. That’s it from the Basin.

Both RMI Forbidden Peak teams reached the summit yesterday!  After a leisurely breakfast, they hiked out to the trailhead, sorted gear and bid farewell.  A glorious four-day program in the North Cascades!
