Marion Mountain (10,362 ft) is often climbed in conjunction with Jean Peak (10,670 ft) and San Jacinto Peak (10, 834 ft).  Both Marion Mountain and Jean Peak were reportedly named by a US Geological Survey topographer named Edmund Taylor Perkins, after Marion Kelly who worked for the Indian Bureau at the Morongo Valley Reservation and Jean Waters (whom he later wed).
