3 out of 5 stars Jan Neuspiel and Andrew Findlay climb of Forever, 03 August 09.

Nicely done Aaron. The cleaning (except maybe the last couple of pitches) and bolting are well done. Fun route with the first 10- pitch being the best in my opinion.
The approach has changed in that the bridge over Nathan Creek is now passable only on foot, not by vehicle, which adds about fifteen minutes each way on the approach/descent. Also the alders and berries are growing in to the point that very soon the road/trail will be near impossible to find. Bring a wrench to tighten a few loose bolts.
