8 Day Cascades Intermediate Returns from Boston Basin

Helloooo internet world,
We had a stellar time up in Boston Basin and made it down safely. Day 4 we had two teams climbing the mega classic West Ridge of Forbidden and one team on Sharkfin Tower.Yesterday, day 5, we even got some ice climbing in on the Quien Sabe Glacier. After that, we packed up and headed down in the heat of the day. Hot, but totally worth it!We hopped in the van and headed east to wonderful Washington Pass, one of my favorite places.We’ll check in later after some more climbing!
