Mount Ritter Climbing - May 2013
Climbing Mount Ritter (13143 feet elevation) with Mike Chen.
My last attempt 8 years ago resulted in my 50 feet fall on the 50 degree slope of Southeast Glacier. Fortunately I was not injured but I learned the lesson.
This time armed with better knowledge about the route and better understanding of crampon use, we made it to about 13000 feet on the south face of the summit block. Due to early season conditions we had difficulty ascending the steepest part of the summit snowfield.
