11 Summits with Outrageous Names

We couldn't have made up these strange-but-true peak names if we tried.
By Casey Lyons ,

We're big dorks for outdoor places and their names. Every once in a while, we come across places with such outrageous names, it's a wonder they haven't been publicly protested by the morality police. God only knows what the people were thinking (or not thinking) when they added these nutso monikers to their local summits. Maybe it's supposed to be a conversation piece? Here, in descending order are the 11 best we could find. All images courtesy of our map partner mytopo.com.
