Highlights

  • Mount Ritter is located in the Sierra Nevada Range and is made of a strikingly dark rock.
  • Ritter is quite prominent due to its height (over 13,000 feet) and isolation.
  • Lies in the middle of the Ritter Range, which includes Banner Peak and the Minarets. The prominent and memorable shape of the Ritter-Banner pair is visible from high elevations far to both north and south in the Sierras.
