|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||7115 ft / 2168 m|
Ascent Trip ReportAble to drive to within 1/2 mile of the Hannegan Pass TH with 4WD and high clearance. Endless icy sidehilling across avy debris to get up to the pass. Once there, followed the standard summer route on snowshoes to the summit (traverse around E side of pt. 5930' then up the S ridge of Ruth). This route crosses quite a bit of dangerous avalanche terrain and we wouldn't have considered it under anything but 'low' avy danger, which we had on this day. Warm and calm on the summit. The views of Shuksan, the Pickets, and the Chilliwacks in their winter coats...wow. What a glorious day in the North Cascades.
