Gramont Peak was officially named in late 2022 after Bertrand (Bert) Gramont (1958-1996) who was a Tech graduate student (MS 1990 in E&ES) and also the climbing instructor. Bert was from France, and he helped introduce safe sport climbing to The Box with bolt-protected routes. The BLM recently marked the peak, so make sure to go sign in on the peak log. You can also add your own contributions for way-markers to popular climbing spots 😄
There's a nice little article in the Defensor Chieftain about it if you're interested.
