In My First Summer in the Sierra:

 

 

Members of the Mariposa Battalion named the Three Brothers after the capture of the three sons of Chief Tenaya near the base of the Three Brothers.[4]

The name Three Brother[edit]

The Ahwahnechee name was “Kom-po-pai-zes”, or sometimes “Pompomposus”, is translated as “mountains with heads like frogs when ready to leap”.[4]
