Kettle Peak (10,004 ft.)
Named by Whitney Survey in 1864
'Just east of that camp [June 26, 1864] we climbed a steep hill, and came
suddenly to a precipice. Beyond was a great basin, or valley, the head of
which is an immense rocky amphitheater.... There is a little lake in this
basin, about 1,600 feet below the brinks of the cliffs.'
(Brewer, Up and Down, 522.)"
- Peter Browning, Place Names of the Sierra Nevada
