Description

Starting from Lake Ediza, gain the summit of Ritter via the SE Glacier route.

Descend via the glacier to the ridge, then proceed down the west slope route to lake Catherine.

Without losing too much elevation, navigate the edge of Rodgers canyon and ascend following the northern drainage to the SE ridge.

Return to camp by heading to Thousand Island Lake and crossing the hills back towards camp.
