Thanks for taking me up there EK! It was the most beautiful view I've had from a mountain in years.
When I first climbed mighty Mt. Ruth, my partner stated that he was not interested in climbing "some no name peak". We ended up camping on the summit in early season and he was suitably impressed with the views that he acquiesced that it was a decent climb.
I spent my 40th birthday camped on the summit (along with a Corgi!) after making the Ruth-Icy traverse, a classy link up with outrageous views.
I have since recommended this climb to friends who all raved about the alpine ambience and relatively easy approach. It definitely deserves recognition.
It is a very special with a very special view. I hope to get Icy now fairly soon. The view from Ruth made it look tempting.
