Banner Peak

Peak12,863 ft37.6966, -119.19514

Being the second highest summit in the Ritter Range, some refer to the peak as one of the most graphic in the whole Sierra. It is most picturesque if viewed from the northeast as if it floats on the calm waters of Thousand Island Lake. The peak's easiest 2-class ascent may be done from the saddle of the Ritter-Banner on the southwest slope.
