Descriptive. In fortifications, a parapet is a defence of earth or stone to cover troops from the enemy’s observation and fire. The name was suggested by shape and by association of sound with Paragon Peak, continuing the fortification theme established by interprovincial boundary surveyors in the 1920s.
