Boston BasinJuly 16, 2016

Creeks- All water crossings were straightforward, with many options.

Snowline- Approximately 5900'. The lower bivy sites are completely melted out, the upper bivy sites are mostly melted out. There are currently 4 rock-lined sites that are snow free at the upper area.

Composters- Both the upper and lower composters are melted out and available for use.

Climbing- Not many parties were successful this weekend as the weather was challenging, however we talked to one group who was on the West Ridge of Forbidden and reported good conditions in the West Ridge Couloir. The Quien Sabe glacier appears to be relatively straightforward to travel on.
