What a beauty!  Sucess!

Whiteout beset us until we cramponed up at the small rock at the toe of the glacier. As soon as we set foot on the ice the clouds cleared and we were left with a beautiful day and a magnificent climb!

Many crevasses this fall

Large crevasses crossing the whole route blocked my passage. See my trip report "Failed on Ruth" for details.

Ruth Glacier  Sucess!

Great little mountain for noobs. In clouds with poor visibility I took my 17 yr. old daughter to summit. It is a short glacier but many crevasses were open so bring a light rope if you want. On other times I have had great views of backside if Shuksan.

Ruth Glacier  Sucess!

Indeed a beautiful climb. Roped up on the glacier but probably didn't need to.. snow was firm and crevasses few and easily avoided. Ice axe and crampons were definitely useful. One of the best views I can recollect.

hannegan pass

Didn't quite make it to the glacier. My partner wasn't feeling well and bailed at the pass. I pushed on, but had trouble following the trail, and I bailed as clouds and weather approached. Looked like a fun climb I may return to someday.

milky weather

no success. we got socked in at the top of the ridge above hannegan (sp?) pass. very lovely. wish we could have seen some of the views though. we got close. the steep hill that goes down the the pass is rediculous when it's just wet and no snow. slippery, muddy, rooty mess. i wish i had snow to do some kick steps. oh well. quite an adventure...a cold, dark, rainy adventure. thats how i like my adventures in washington

Crappy Weather  Sucess!

It rained for the entire approach, then snowed for the entire climb. Visability was little more than 100ft most of the time. Summit after about 5 hours. Old Goretex jacket offically no longer waterproof.

Ruth Mountain  Sucess!

Nick and I climbed Ruth on our way back out from trying for Challenger. We climbed up onto the Ruth Arm with superb views in every direction. We had an extra day, so we bivied on a flat spot in the trees. We had the mountain all to ourselves.

Route Climbed: North slope from Hannegan Pass  Sucess!

Four hours from car to summit. A great summit close to the road, easily doable in a day. The most amazing views of the Price Glacier on Mt. Shuksan.

Route Climbed: Hannegan Pass / standard route Date Climbed: July 9, 2005  Sucess!

Scramble up the gully above Hannegan was the usual muddy mess. Almost no snow on the bench above, so much safer. Some small crevasses showing on the glacier, but not open. We roped up for the trip to the summit. Nooksack Cirque and Shuksan were mostly obscured by clouds. Still, a fun day, although long.
