Ruth & Icy
Andres and I got out for a nice day linking Baby Ruth with Ice Ice Baby. We followed the route taken by Lowell and Carl in 2003: https://turns-all-year.com/trip-reports/june-15-2003-ruth-icy-traverse-ncnp
It was an awesome, big day. We only made it to the W shoulder of Icy and passed on the scramble due to time and lack of know-where to go. The skiing was good although sticky, probably worst on the glacier off Icy but not bad. I thought the twin chutes SW of Ruth were really fun. Best corn was found skiing Ruth down to the creek. We wasted some time down low before deciding to re-ascend to ~5000' due W of point 5930 from where we were able to ski back to the trail and quickly switched to walking.

Looking back to Ruth
Tracks leading into Pass Ck from Ruth/Icy divide. Very wide, 5 digits easily visible, shorter stride than I'd expect from a bear.
