"The peak was named by Theodore S. Solomons
in 1892 for its shape. (Farquhar:
Solomons.) 'Sharktooth Peak' was mislocated on the 15-minute quad.
The peak it was applied to is now named 'Cockscomb.' On the 15-minute
quad, the correct Sharktooth Peak is 0.8 mile north-northwest of
Silver Peak, on the Silver Divide. (BGN
decisions, 1969.) The lake and creek were first named on the 15-minute quads."
