Route Climbed: Ritter-Banner Saddle Date Climbed: Sept 22nd 2002
Nice challenging day hike. As 'snwburd' said, the snow was not the best (slush and ice). Kinda sketchy downclimbing 40 degree incline on an instep. As for the guys from Bridgeport that signed the register in August 2000....you guys are turds!! Airwing Marines Rule!!
Route Climbed: Banner-Ritter Saddle Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2002
Dayhiked from Agnews Meadow with Dave Daly. The snow up to the saddle was heavily runnelled and moderately steep - not in very good condition at all. Between us we had a pair of 10-pointers and a pair of instep crampons. Splitting them up gave us each one solid foot and one weak one - made for the highlight of the climb. 13hr30m CTC - Trip Report
