Yes that would be very accurate- the main ridge is in a major migration area and the confluence of two major rivers in the area. Thanks for looking.
I named the peak about 5 years ago and you are the first person to figure out the name. Cool!
Dan- I didn't know that you named it- I guess I just read it on different sites, one of which was yours. I added a small note on the Overview that you named it. Is there anything more to the naming of it? If so, let me know so I can add that information to the page. Thanks

I first placed the flag "pole" and an American flag on Cervidae in the spring of 2003. I had been using Cervidae as a training climb for several years. Shortly before I left for the Alaska Range to climb Foraker in May of 2003, America invaded Iraq. Several of my friends in the reserves were called up and would be leaving while I was in Alaska. So I hauled up a length of oak 2x2, a roll of electric fencing wire, four heavy duty tent stakes and a sledge hammer to put up the pole and a flag in honor of our servicemen and women. I never thought that poll would last as long as it has given the winds up there--have often thought of putting in a taller steel pole that would make the flag more easily seen from the highway, would keep the flag up above the shrubs and snow, and would be less likely to someday snap in the wind and blow away. It's nice to see that this summit is so popular, and that the flag is replaced often. On numerous occasions I have taken a replacement flag up only to find a fairly new one already there. Thanks to the community of hikers who keep the register supplies stocked, including the 2013 New Year's grog of bourbon!
