Slippery when wet name for a bouldering problem in Eldorado, and a rock climb in the south platte.

Mexican Hat, UT. SE Utah. Named after the red rock feature that looks like an upside down sombrero.
A painter’s got a canvas. The writer’s got reams of empty paper. A musician has silence.

Sugartit, KY - Used to live a few miles away. Great area of the country. Also near Big Bone Lick State Park and Rabbit Hash, where the mayor greats you like a dog - because he is one.

Sugartit was named after an asphalt company! Technically no longer exists but still recognized by maps.

Perhaps you already know this, but it was named because the water acts as a laxative (really).
