“Our cubehouse still rocks as earwitness to the thunder of his arafatas but we hear also through successive ages that shebby choruysh of unkalified muzzlenmiissilehims that would blackguardise the whitestone ever hurtleturtled out of heaven.” At least that’s the story James Joyce related in Finnigans Wake. The ridge was named by the interprovincial boundary survey party of Wheeler and Cautley in 1921.
