Merced Peak (11,726 ft.)
Named by Wheeler Survey in 1878
"The Clark Range was known as both the 'Obelisk Group'
and the 'Merced Group' at the time of the Whitney
Survey. (Whitney, The Yosemite Book, 1868, 97.) The present name
for the peak first appears on the Wheeler Survey atlas sheet 56D,
1878-79. The fork was named on the 15-minute quad, 1953."
