The highest point of the Ritter Range, with views of the central Sierra, Mono Lake, and into Nevada. This is a prominent notch-backed mountain, a compelling sight from Highway 395. Ritter is a challenging peak, requiring some technical climbing experience. Mount Ritter is a big mountain and a serious undertaking. Two steep snowfields must be crossed, and they can be treacherous when icy.
