Harvey Manning christened the eastmost peak of West Defiance Ridge “Dirty Harry’s Peak” in dubious recognition of Harry Gault, whose logging operations were notorious for both their devastating thoroughness and ingenuity. The trees have grown back though, and while a trail nears the peak, the true summit is on a small parcel of private land.
