Did it in the summer of 2009 as a Ranger. This peak was a pain in the ass to hike. I started at Crater Lake, did Trail Peak, went to Beaubien, did Bonito, went to Black Mountain Camp, went to Miners Park and then back to base camp. I almost died atop this peak from an intense thunderstorm. I would have taken more pictures of the summit, but I pretty much touched it and took one picture and ran off to a low point. Glad I did it though
