Glacier Ridge (12,380 ft.)

Named by USGS in 1903

Also Lake

"'... we found the source of the Roaring River in a beautiful circular lake fed by a well-formed glacier. ... From this point the open upper valley of the river stretches straight away northwardly.' (William R. Dudley in SCB 2, no. 3, Jan. 1898: 186-87; also sketch map, plate XXV.) This took place in July 1896. The ridge name probably derives from the lake. Both names were on the first edition of the Tehipite 30' map, 1905."
