Charles Michael made the first ascent of his namesake Minaret in September of 1923. Michael was the postmaster in Yosemite Valley in the early years of the twentieth century and was one of the finest climbers of his day. He made many ascents, often solo, of climbs that are now considered moderate fifth class. Michael’s wife, Enid, accompanied him on his climb of the west couloir up to a section he later termed the “ladder with the lower rungs missing.” This difficult pitch was followed by more exposed technical climbing above the “Portal.” When his peak was later shown to be a few feet lower than the neighboring Clyde Minaret, Michael exclaimed, “Whether my peak was the highest or not does not matter to me so much, for I can at least recommend it as a grand and thrilling climb.”
