Also Creek

"An expedition of Boy Scouts from the San Joaquin Valley was commemorated by giving the name 'Eagle Scout Peak' to a mountain on the Great Western Divide. Francis P. Farquhar of the Sierra Club led three of the scouts on a first ascent of the peak on July 15, 1926. (SCB 12, no. 4, 1927: 40.) The names first appeared on the fourth edition of the Tehipite 30' map, 1929. Before 1929, the creek was named 'North Fork of Middle Fork of Kahweah River.'"
