Summitted from Hannegan Trailhead in 4hr 15 minutes. Beautiful day with great views all around. Gentle glacier slope and only saw 3 or 4 minor crevasses (none we had to cross over).

Easy hike, with a little snow and spectacular views thrown in. Took an iceaxe, didn't need crampons, foot-glissaded the whole way down.

Climbed the Ruth Glacier route from Hannegan Pass. Many large downed trees blocked the Hannegan Pass Road a few miles from the trailhead. New snow from a spring snow storm, and warm weather a few days later when we climbed, made for interesting wet slide conditions. Some exciting avalanches came off of the Northern slopes of Shuksan. All in all, a great climb.

Climbed with the chupacabra which was a bit of a nightmare. Very nice climb though.

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!
