Painted Lady (12,119 ft.)

"The peak was called 'The Pyramid' by Bolton C. Brown in 1899. (SCB 3, no. 2, May 1900: 136, 142.) By at least as early as 1910 it was known as 'Colored Lady.' (SCB 8, no. 1, Jan., 1911: photo opp. 65.) That name did not appear on the maps. 'Painted Lady' is first seen on the 15-minute quad, 1953."
