The first ascent of Mount Woolley was completed by the Japanese Alpine Club's party's four days after their first ascent of Mount Alberta.

A successful book publisher, Herman Woolley was an accomplished football player and boxer who did not take up mountaineering in earnest until he was forty. After a brief apprenticeship in the Alps, he went to the Caucasus and made several first ascents. He served as a president of the Alpine Club. He joined Hugh Stutfield and Norman Collie for their 1898 and 1902 expeditions in the Canadian Rockies.
