And certainly not to be the last! The view is superb, nearly the entire San Joaquin watershed. It was a fabulous place to piece together many other locations I'd visited into an overall mental map/mosaic. I think the summit bug is in my blood!
Can't remember the exact date, but it was a good hike. It was easy for me because we were going slow to accomadate those in our group. Everyone made it with some pushing and pulling (literally!). Great view of the surrounding mountains.

Nice hike. I messed up and forgot to bring my camera. The 360 degree views from this summit are nothing short of awesome. Ritter and Banner seem so close. Was up and down in less then 5 hours. Thunderheads where building fast. All in all a beautiful hike.
