Although this appears to be a mountain peak, it is really just a rise in a long mountain slope that has been cut off by the canyon. From this location at the mouth of Rock Canyon, it appears to be a peak. But from a distance taken across Utah Valley, it basically disappears and is certainly not a recognizable landmark. There is an ongoing controversy about the names of physical features on the landscape. Many of these names were applied when the public sense of political and social correctness was not nearly so heavy-handed as it is now. I am certainly in favor of changing the names of geographic features and even manmade places that reflect prejudice and are derogatory to any group of people whether racially motivated or merely rude and inappropriate, but I also think that every rock on the face of the earth does not need its own special name. This “peak” however is grossly inappropriately named and a new designation for this rock formation at the mouth of Rock Canyon is long overdue. Here is a view of the same canyon from across the valley. See if you can find this “peak.”
