Class 4

This is a fun/great peak for two reasons or more. One is the moderate climbing required to summit. Two is that this is still a North Cascade Peak not climbed by hordes of people giving you some remoteness without bushwhacking or spending days getting to the peak.  Some reports are from climbers doing the Ruth to Icy Peak traverse and back to the car in one day. Some spend a night on Ruth’s summit with the fantastic views of Shuksan, Pickets and more. (SummitPost)
