North America, United States, Washington, Cascade Mountains, Mount Formidable, Northwest Face
Mount Formidable, Northwest Face. On June 28, Gordon Adams and I climbed the northwest face of Mount Formidable. We approached via the primitive Cleve Creek Valley. The route went up the center of the 45° face mostly on névé just left of a rock fin. A couple of exposed traverses of cornice flutings were encountered near the top.
