Mount Forbes, Northwest Face. Jeff Lowe, Graham Thompson and I walked in to Glacier Lake and the following day forded the stream emerging from the Lyell Glacier to bivouac on a moraine near the junction of the Mons and North Forbes glaciers. The climb was directly up the northwest face, which was in excellent condition for front-pointing. We belayed over one short section through the rock band but otherwise moved together on the 2000-foot face, the weather being cloudy throughout. NCCS III.
