If your priority is only climbing, Silvretta’s with short skis and only climbing boots is fine. The Ruth is composed of really low angle glaciers with very steep walls and not much in between – which is why it is not a great ski-only destination. The approach ski tours are typically very mellow downhill glides or flat to mellow uphill slogs.
Hey I thought this could be a good place to get ideas and opinions about favorite ski kits for Alaska. Going to the Ruth gorge doing one day routes to multi day affairs.
Silvretta with climbing boots on short skis ?
Going with a full AT set up and climbing in AT boots ?
Approaching the climb in AT carrying the climbing boots in the pack ?
Universal bindings on really short, fat skis ?
