Agnew Meadows to Ediza Lake (Backpacking) Professional Review and Guide
"With only moderate effort this trail places you among peaks of the spectacular Ritter Range—capped by Mt. Ritter, Banner Peak, and the Minarets—in the Ansel Adams Wilderness. Some say that the alpine beauty of all Sierra lakes culminates at Ediza Lake where, amid towering evidence of mountain building and glacial action, the visitor can readily appreciate the colossal forces that shaped these awe-inspiring landforms. For more than a century, climbers have used the shores of Ediza Lake as their base camps for scaling these classic peaks. However, hikers without climbing experience should not attempt them without the guidance of capable climbers."
