Superior Peak, Salt Lake County

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:

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

Also:

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?
