The Forbes River provides access to Mt D’Archiac and the minor peaks at the head of the valley. It is also used for access to the Godley Valley via Twilight, Separation and Revelation Cols.
With two minor scrub bashes, it is possible to travel on the true right all the way up to the South Forbes Glacier.
Forbes Bivouac (DOC) : A standard two-person bivvy in the Forbes Valley, not easily visible from the riverbed. There is camping 10 minutes above the forks, about 1 km past the bivvy.
