Glacier Ridge (12,380 ft.)
Named by USGS in 1903
"'... 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."
