- Larry Davis hiked the summit daily for 2,850 days (7.8 years)
- 3rd most popularly hiked the mountain in the world at 125,000 hikers a year
- The summit is barren, this isn’t because of a natural tree line, but because there were fires set by settlers sometime between 1810 and 1820 that raged for weeks destroying all the trees and the top-soil
