"CMC Outing- Day 1: Hike from Agnew Meadows to Lake Ediza Day 2: Ascend saddle between Ritter/Banner. Ascend southwest slopes. Traverse to Ritter North Face. Descent SE glacier. Day 3: Pack out" - seancasserly, Aug 25, 2018
"Attempted a Ritter-Banner dayclimb. The snowclimb to the Ritter-Banner saddle was in horrible shape this late in the season and I wasted alot of time slogging up the loose snow. I topped out on Banner just before noon just as thunderstorms started immediately overhead. The worst part is had it not been for the storms, I would have had more than enough time and energy for both. I had to descend from the saddle instead of climbing the North Face of Ritter as planned, and lost my ice axe during a glissade. Whoever gets to it first- finders keepers.
