Ruth Mountain & Icy Peak Traverse

Trip

Basic Glacier Climb - Ruth Mountain & Icy Peak Traverse

This climb is for members of the Glacier Climbing course and is Ruth Mountain only - not the traverse. Although it is considered a "basic alpine" climb for the Basic course, we will be roping up and crossing a glacier, so this qualifies as a glacier climb for this class.
