Forbidden Peak Professional Review and Guide
"The climbs in the watershed of the North Fork Cascade River are some of the most popular in Washington due to their relatively easy access and splendid alpine landscape. The most outstanding example is Forbidden Peak. The rock is firm and the summit is one of the finest and most favored in the range. Forbidden Peak is known for its angular appearance, with three sharp ridges emanating from its spiked top. A monster mountain, Forbidden is set apart from the mass of ice and jagged spires at its sides by an impressive amount of airy exposure."
