Photographer Jason Hummel, brothers Andy and Mike Traslin and Jeff Rich recently knocked off the Forbidden Traverse, a noteworthy North Cascades multi-day route first pioneered by Martin Volken in 1999. The group spent three days on the route, which begins along Highway 20 before passing over Forbidden Peak (8,816 ft.) and Eldorado Peak (8,868 ft.), the descent of which, Mike Translin says, was the highlight of the trip. “Good weather and good snow stability made it a good time to slog up some mountains,” he adds. Here’s a video from the traverse.
