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.
