Ruth Mountain & Icy Peak Traverse


We left the trailhead at 10:00am and made the summit of Ruth at 4:25pm. The west ridge of Ruth provided as easy descent. Camped on flat snow above the gulley. Found a tiny trickle that we were able to funnel into a bowl so we didn't have to melt snow.

Left camp at 4:10am and made the summit of Icy at 8:45am. Set up a handline and had no problem fitting nine people on the summit. Back to camp at 12:40pm. Skirted around Ruth and made it to the cars at 5:50pm.
