Usually known as Lion Head:


All Kelsey's books Utah Mountaineering Guide dating back to 1983, 1986, and 1997 use the name Lion Head on all the maps (see the Provo Peak map in any edition of the Utah Mountaineering Guide). In the latest edition, this is on pages 104 and 105. This seems to be the most common local name for the mountain.

However Utah Valley Trails from 1978 uses the name Heritage Mountain (see pg. 51).

I've heard both names used locally, but Lion Head seems the most common name by far used in more recent decades.
