Description

Ruth Mountain is a mellow glaciated peak located in the North Cascades on the border of Mt. Baker Wilderness and North Cascades NP. Ruth Mountain is mostly a walk-up involving some easy glacier travel on minimally crevassed terrain. Can be done car to car in a day, while the more ambitious often continue on to do the full Ruth-Icy Peak Traverse. The standard route on Ruth is also a popular ski descent in winter or early season.

Getting There

Hike 4 miles up the Hannegan Pass Trail to Hannegan Pass. Pick up a climbers trail heading south and follow it until it reaches talus and the toe of the glacier on the north side of Ruth.

My friend and I set out to ski Ruth in January 2016. The road to the parking lot was closed so we had to ski the road in. There is a lean-to out there. We planned to stay in it... There was an epic surprise in store for us when we got there... It was stocked with some really dry wood!

Thanks whoever you are that stocked the lean-to.

That totally made the outing. Oct 22, 2017
