    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 Monday.

    Taylor believes the peak has been unnamed long enough. He suggests calling it "Taylor-Wright Peak."
