comment Is there a word that specifically refers to reaching the top of a hill or mountain?
If you repeat the word, you're not using it as intended. You summit a mountain, not a summit. (And why is it that you might end up repeating the word? Would it be an accident or something?)

comment What does “falling and missing the ground” mean?
@nodakai: Sounds like a reference to Douglas Adams, where he describes how to fly.

comment “Must of ” vs “must have”
Using of in place of have (especially in "should've") has likely crossed the threshold in British English already. I don't have it in front of me right now, but I believe the dialogue in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone uses of exclusively. (It's global-searched-and-replaced to -'ve for the American Sorcerer's Stone.)

comment What's a parallel for 'mitigate', for worsening a good situation?
The only piece of this answer that is even vaguely in the spirit of the question is worsen. The "justification" for suggesting exacerbate and aggravate completely misses the point.
