Ritter and Banner

Ritter and Banner pierce the horizon for many miles in every direction. I have wanted to climb these peaks for a long time, and finally set out to climb them in one big 16 hour loop. What a beautiful day it was!

We started at Agnew Meadows and got a beautiful view of the sunrise from the PCT
