I'd been to various points on the ridge in prior years, and on all the surrounding peaks, but didn't actually get to this summit till 09. It's a great early and late season hike--I loved an April trip along the ridge a couple of years back.
Summitted with Dave Hart and Mikki Hand in December 1992. I also climbed Mount Magnificent via the east ridge after climbing Mile High Peak on November 9, 2002, with Ross Noffsinger and Leslie Robbins. I led a Mountaineering Club of Alaska trip up the west ridge to the summit after work on August 10, 2004; Jennifer DuFord and Katie Hahn reached the summit with me.
