It is named for Galen Clark, an early explorer and the first guardian of Yosemite National Park. The Clark Range, also named for Galen Clark, is a sub-range of the Sierra Nevada. Before it was given its present name, it was known as Gothic Peak and then The Obelisk, the name used by the Whitney Survey. Obelisk Lake, at 9,853 feet (3,003 m) lies on the mountain's northeast flank.
