Glaciated climb requirement through the Bellingham Mountaineers basic alpine course checked off with this one - our party of 7 camped on the other side of Ruth after summiting it on 7/7. Woke up and started hiking by a little after 4:30am, summit by around 9am with a double rope length rap from the summit block. Back to camp, back up and over Ruth, and back to parking lot by 6:30pm. Long, arduous - very worth it for the views of the Nooksack Cirque
Great trip to Icy, second time form me. Previous trip with Nick and Valado via Nooksack Cirque.
Sweet little mountain up close to Shuksan
