Quandary Resolution 1922
onomancy, nether, notch, inchoate
In the White Mountains of New Hampshire, we Appalachian Trail hikers devised a system of onomancy based on the names of peaks (the more popular the mountain's namesake, the higher number of tourist visits and thus the less sadistic the approach trail out of the intervening notch), but the system broke down somewhere on the nether reaches of Wildcat Mountain, where the inchoate map showed an ambiguous series of peaks labeled merely A, B, C, D, and E, one of which (D, I believe) had both a near-vertical approach trail and, due to a gondola, hordes of unexpected tourists.
