nameless peaks in NV addition

From the U.S. Board on Geographic Names - Principals, Policies and Procedures - Sec. 1 The BGN will not approve proposed names for unnamed features within wilderness areas, including unpublished names in local use, unless an overriding need can be demonstrated by the proponent.

This includes Wilderness Study areas. That said many of the P2ks that are listed as Range or Mountain High Points and Benchmarks in Nevada are not allowed to be named. I recently checked with a Board member and Cherry Creek Benchmark being on the border of the wilderness will not be officially named.
