The Sierra Club proposed the name Mt. Mendel for this peak so that Johan Gregor Mendel could take his place with the other scientists and philosophers involved with developing the theory of evolution. Mendel was an Austrian geneticist whose study of gene characteristics laid the foundation for later evolutionary theories. Jules Eichorn, John Olmstead, and Glen Dawson made the first recorded ascent (a large arrowhead was found ten feet from the summit in 1985) during their peakbagging expedition of July of 1930. The most distinctive features on the peak are the twin ice gullies on the steep north face. At the time of the first ascent, the right-hand couloir was considered the hardest ice climb in the Sierra. A steep bulge in the middle of the gully has been measured at over 60 degrees. This gully has been skied twice in the last 20 years.
