The towering escarpment that rises from the Bob Marshall Wilderness has long been called the Chinese Wall, but a small group of people is petitioning to change that.

A Change.org petition states:

“Locals have long questioned why the magnificent landmark was called the Chinese Wall. They want this beautiful and striking piece of landscape to be connected to the rich local heritage and nature related to the great state of Montana.

A team of six friends and family have been rallying authorities, entrepreneurs and politicians to team up and get the name appropriately changed once and for all.

This is no easy endeavor, as it will literally require an act of Congress to give the Wall a new name. We need your support to get the job done.” 

As of Friday morning, 70 people had signed the petition.
