The largest and most extraordinary peak on the east side of the Ruth Gorge is the Mooses Tooth. It is surrounded on all sides by steep ridges and faces making any ascent to the summit a technical challenge. Classic routes abound on this peak with some of the most popular being Ham and Eggs, Shaken Not Stirred and the Fifty Classic West Ridge. Beyond all of the snow and ice routes there is also the southwest face which is an alpine rock climbers dream. I'm unsure how many routes have been climbed up these faces but I do know that there is still a lot of first ascent potential.
Mooses Tooth is located on the east side of the Ruth Gorge north east of the Wisdom Tooth. It is boardered on the south west by the Root Canal Glacier and on the east by the Buckskin Glacier.
