Sampling the 2006 Augustine dome

The 2006 lava dome is the actual high point on Augustine but you wouldn't want to go up there without some oxygen, perhaps some climbing gear and a lot of luck.

Fantastic image from a rarely visited place, I suppose. So do you know by how much the height of the mountain increased in 2006?

Re: nice

Good question. Have had a look around but have found conflicting information about how high Augustine has been at different times. Couldn't find any useful publications on the matter either. It seemed from what I could see at the top that spines exceed the elevation of the non-dome area by 30 m?
