First climbed August 31, 1891 by Lt. Milton Fennimore Davis when he was assigned to protect the newly established Yosemite Park. His account tells a tale of sleeping without blankets, camping at timberline and making a fire, as well as having a Methodist preacher accompnay him, Dr. E. W. Beers. 'The trip nearly killed him' as he gave out and did not cross the last gorge. In 1894, Lt. McClure named the peak.
