Route Climbed: North slopes Date Climbed: June 1997
Two weeks after summitting nearby Mt. Shuksan, Duane and I and another friend returned to the area for a climb of Ruth. There was still lots of snow even below Hannegan Pass, so it was entirely a snow climb. Someday I want to go back and camp near Hannegan, then get up early for sunrise photos of the eastern slopes of Shuksan!
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
