Augustine summit panorama

Approaching the summit of Augustine volcano on June 29th 2009 having ascended from the western side of the island. Collected some rocks from the 2006 dome (top and left) before heading back the same way.

Amazing

This is one of those peaks I have always wondered about due to its uniqueness. Great photo.

Re: Amazing

Thanks. I had also been thinking how unusual it was but randomly came across this island in the Great Salt Lake, Utah. Couldn't think of another sizable island surrounded by snowy mountains but there you have it. http://www.summitpost.org/image/148366/152498/from-the-summit-looking.html

How long did it take from base to summit?

Re: very cool

About 5 hours, but we had a group of mixed abilities so perhaps that's an average expected time got good weather during the summer. Not sure if a lot more snow would make things easier or not as there would be less scree and boulder clambering but perhaps more hard ice and avalanches.
