Trail up to pt 5930
Chris & Mary after coming up the crappy bits of pt. 5930.
Views of the route from the arm. We were switched to glacier gear almost at the top of that rock rib.
Views of Shuksan and Mount Baker from the saddle between pt. 5930 and Ruth Mountain.
Chris pointing something out.
Views from the summit. The obvious valley close in is Pass Creek. This is looking into NCNP.
More views from the summit
From the summit, looking back the way we came. The Hannegan creek valley.
Chris, with the nooksack glacier behind him.
On the summit, looking toward Mt. Shuksan
Summit of Ruth Mountain
Checking out a Crevasse. This is the obvious crevasse you can see from photos, at about 6500'
The saddle between pt. 5930 and Ruth Mountain was beautiful
The trail up follows the drainage on the left there. It's steep and loose, but manageable. Think cableline but 50% worse.
