Superior Peak, Salt Lake County

Postby Scott Patterson » Thu May 12, 2016 5:44 pm

Despite the latest USGS maps, all local sources, maps, and books I know of call this one Monte Christo. The unranked summit to the east is generally known as Superior (though usually "Mount Superior" instead of "Superior Peak".

See here, for example: ... me&q=monte

I also have several maps (including topographic) with the above usage if you are interested in seeing some scans.


Older USGS maps also label the eastern summit as Superior, including the 1903 "Cottonwood" USGS quad.

I assume that the latest USGS maps are a mistake?
