I would like to take several amazing backpacking adventures this Spring and Summer.
Does anyone have a mountain they have climbed/hiked that they recommend?
I have never done Ritter, but many routes are listed in my 1976 guidebook -classes 2,3,4, and 5. The class 3 route from the Ritter-Banner Saddle ends with the notation "This is a hazardous route and has claimed many lives". I would suggest getting current beta.
As for Mt Ritter, approaching the crux of the "easy" way, my partner, on her hardest mountain yet turns to me and says, "If I die here, tell my sons I love them."
Have a nice climb!
