Ruth Mountain

Ultimate First-Time Mountain Experience

With quick access to glaciat­ed ter­rain and a spec­tac­u­lar set­ting on the north side of Mount Shuk­san, climb­ing Ruth Moun­tain offers one of the best entry lev­el peaks for first time moun­taineers. From the sum­mit of Ruth Moun­tain you get a glimpse into the spec­tac­u­lar Pick­ets Range and a unique north side view of Mount Shuksan. 

With some excep­tions this climb is done as our pre­ferred des­ti­na­tion for our Intro­duc­tion to Moun­taineer­ing Course — view dates here. Oth­er­wise, it can be done on a cus­tom basis.
