First version cropped looks more impressive for me as it shows more of the mountain. The wider one tends to guide the eye outside and beyond to the right side. It is also a bit too wide for my taste.
Best regards

I agree that speaking in terms of traditional composition, the crop works much better. I am still hesitant because the no crop to me strengthens the sense of the natural symmetric "cathedral" that I found quite remarkable.

Very moody, nice.

Cropped a little losser on the right, a little tighter on the left ... i.e. split the diff/small shift, ratio @ 3.33:1

Fine work.
I prefer the more cropped versions, yours and Kent's

Placing the peak in the center of the frame gives a somewhat static feel. Also the greater width makes the sky seem more cramped. The crop places the peak in a more pleasing off-center position and increases the height of the sky relative to the remainder of the image. With Photoshop CS5 you could use context aware fill to build a little more sky at the top of the frame. I believe that would help the compositional balance on both the original and cropped images, although the peak position would continue to favor cropping from the right. OTOH, adding a little sky to the original retains much of the pano feel, whilst adding sky to the cropped version moves it into the more conventional ration image range.
