The earliest ascent appears to be in 1890 by William Ralph. Ralph was employed by the British Columbian Government to survey the western boundary of the Esquimalt and Nanaimo (E. & N.) Railway Company Land Grant. He started from Otter Point near Sooke Bay and continued to the foot of Crown Mountain west of Campbell River, the culminating point of the land grant. He traveled virtually in a straight line whereby every five miles he placed a post or built a rock cairn that could be seen from a distance so that a survey bearing could be taken. Mount Albert Edward, although technically not on the survey line, was very close and because of its straightforward terrain would have been an easy access route to the boundary line.
