good ol' google earth has 11,300 labled as "Mount Kudlich", and in ten years of looking for history and new things to attempt on that peak i never have seen that lable before...

you guys ever come across this? if its accurate, anyone know the history behind it?


edit: i just checked and the Washburn database does not have that name listed, at least through their search engine

I've heard that name before for Peak 11301 (aka 11300). Back in the early 1900s Belmore Browne (I think it was him) placed a map in his book of his early exploration and attempt of Mount McKinley that had that peak labeled as Mount Kudlich. I don't know who Kudlich was, but I'm assuming it was a comemorative name.

Also, check out the Mount Kudlich page on peakbagger.com. What is the "Washburn database" that you referenced? Is it available online?
