A climb of the east ridge direct of Forbidden Peaks is a magnificent alpine romp. This video depicts a dayclimb of the classic route by Ari, Daniel, Mark, and me. Music is Beethoven's Pastorale Symphony. Notice how long I delay the end of the movie just so you can enjoy the sublime melody of the final movement of the symphony, one of the best. Check out the violin line over the cello melody. Oh yeah, and there's great footage of the crux pitch too!
