The first recorded ascent of this peak was made by a party that includes my great, great grandfather George Little in July 1901.
We came up the Schiesser Ledges and since the weather was so nice, be did a quick scramble to the top on the way out after hiking Mount Little the previous day.
Fun trip. Used Cirrus Alpine Guides (Mark Stewart) - very good experience.
Went from highway, up North Face/West Ridge of Mt. Fay, back to the hut. Next day climbed Bowlen and Little and headed out for beers and burgers at the Post Hotel. Good two days with M. Siddles.
They weren't kidding when the said it was a short climb. Took about 17 or 18 minutes from the Hut to the top. Apparently has been done in 8 minutes. I know it's not a race but this just illustrates that you just have to top this one if you're at the hut and the weather is OK. The views from the top are, as with every other peak in the area, beyond description. Have fun!
