Moose’s Tooth. In May Tim Auger, Mike Farrell, Ron Gilligan and I attempted the Moose’s Tooth via the Ruth Glacier-south col route. Although this route has been attempted many times, the Moose’s Tooth had still only one ascent—via the west ridge by a German party in 1964. Our four-day push failed 600 feet from the summit in the face of bad weather, inadequate supplies and frost-riven granite.
