Dan, Keith, Duane, and I took the standard easy hiking route up this one in August, 1998. We saw some mountain goats on the way up, and had the summit to ourselves for lunch. Matt, Dan, Duane, and I climbed this one again in May, 1999 via the Superior slide area. Dan and Duane found a cool hidden side couloir which was steep and awesome. The wind was very fast, which made for a better trip overall, except the snow that would hit us in the face and sting.
