Got within about 700 vert feet of the top, but still had a great time and an interesting mountain rescue experience on the way back. Read about that here: http://www.summitpost.org/ordeal-on-mt-ritter/734852

DariaBeautiful area  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2009


The Minarets and surrounding area and lakes was more memorable than the actual climb. Nice views atop the blocky-summit. The climbing became more fair 3rd class closer to the summit. Day hike

Part of what I had hoped to be a three summit weekend, but one out of three isn't the worst.

iditarod81Great snow in the couloir.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2009


Great snow conditions in the couloir on both the way up and (surprisingly) in the afternoon on the way down. Amazing views of Yosemite, Mono Lake, White Mtn and beyond from the summit! A little disappointing to see all the horse excrement along the trail in such pristine setting, however.

Wanted to do Ritter also, but time and fear of running into 4th/5th class chutes on the north face did not permit an ascent. We'll be back with some rope for Ritter's NF.

mrchad9From L Catherine  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2009


In from Rush Creek, camped at 1000 Island. Had snow from 10,000 ft to the Ritter Banner saddle. Not convinced I circled L Catherine the easiest way, but really enjoyed the climb. Stuck to the ridge near the top for some nice class 3. Over to Davis later the same day.

Climbed Banner Peak from Lake Catherine on a long loop starting from Rush Creek, to Banner, to Shadow Lake and returning to Rush Creek. Early season made it more of a snow climb but a fun time anyway! May 22-25, 2009...
