There is considerable debate and confusion over the last consonant in the name of this peak. The name "Scarper Peak" appears to be more commonly used, but many people feel that "Scarpet Peak" is more correct. On this site, "Scarper" is used, due to have twice as many Google search hits for that term, and because it is the name on the USGS map.
