Mount Brewer: Northeast Rib Professional Review and Guide
"In 1864, the Whitney Survey named Mt. Brewer in honor of their field leader, William Brewer, who made the first ascent. In describing the view of the peak from their camp, Clarence King wrote, “The form of the mountain at the head of our ravine was purely Gothic. A thousand upspringing spires and pinnacles pierce the sky in every direction; the cliffs and ridges are everywhere ornamented with countless needle-like turrets. Crowning the wall to the south of our camp were a series of these jagged forms standing out against the sky like a procession of colossal statues. Whichever way we turned, we were met by some extraordinary fullness of detail.”"
