Jimmy Simpson was the outfitter and guide on the approach to this mountain. After leading the group up Owen Creek and crossing the west branch of Thompson Creek, Rudolph Aemmer took over guiding the group up the mountain. After recently celebrating his fiftieth birthday and not being a climber Jimmy could certainly have waited in camp as most of the outfitters generally did. But Jimmy decided to join the group on what was, at least for him, a nerve-wracking ascent.
