LOS ANGELES (AP) - A man, his son and grandson climbed a mountain peak with no name, but there was one on what they found there.

The three were on an 11-day trip to Sequoia National Park when they climbed a Sierra Nevada summit and came across a rusted canister stuffed with a note a teenager named Tim Taylor left 40 years before.

The note asked the finder to write.

Instead, Larry Wright of Oakland went in search of Taylor, who is now a San Diego County Superior Court judge.

This week Taylor revealed he was on a Boy Scout trip in 1972 when he left the note.

The men talked to the Los Angeles Times (lat.ms/QQaVbN) Monday. Taylor believes the peak has been unnamed long enough. He suggests calling it "Taylor-Wright Peak."
