In the 1940s the name “Osilinka” was proposed for the mountain, however, as this is a Sekani name translated as “river where wild rhubarb grows, ”and that refers to a river in the Omineca watershed), the proposal was turned down. McBride-area residents adjusted the spelling of “their” peak, and the name became entrenched.

The Ozelanka Alpine Club, formed in 1991, is open to residents of the Robson Valley. The club maintains a cabin in the Ozalenka valley named the Glen Stanley Alpine Hut after one of the club’s founders.
