747 Pass in the Ruth Gorge

747 Pass

Flickr member and climber Eric Dacus posted this excellent image of the Ruth Gorge in the McKinley Massive, Alaska taken with a Canon 5D.

Many years ago a few friends and I flew through and landed in that gorge with the famed bush/glacier pilot Doug Geeting. It was incredible. The Ruth Gorge is one of the deepest on earth: the rock walls on each side rise over 5000 feet off the glacier and the ice of the glacier is thousands of feet thick in the gorge. It’s an incredible place.
