Ritter West Slope V-notch

The key to a successful climb of the West Slope of Mount Ritter is finding a connector between two bowls. Once you reach the lower bowl, observe a V-notch to your right (south). The "notch" is actually the bottom of another bowl ("upper bowl"), which leads you to Ritter's South Ridge in the next phase of the ascent. However, don't try to reach the notch directly from here (yellow path). Instead, continue up the lower bowl, until you get to an easily identifiable rocky outcrop in its higher part, then use a system of ledges (green path) to traverse almost horizontally back to the V-notch.
