|Curiously, Bryan's Sectional Maps, Google Maps, US National Atlas, and a number of
other maps (google "kulepiamoa") call the ridge in question "Kūlepiamoa." One wonders where
that got its start; it sounds like a "haole" pronunciation.
USGS maps and Pukui, Elbert and Mookini, Place Names of Hawai, make it a more reasonable "Kūlepeamoa." More reasonable in that "lepe" = "rooster comb" is otherwise Hawaiian while "lepi" is not.
