Mountain Named after JPII

From Reuters:
Pope John Paul, who was an avid mountaineer in his younger years, had a mountain peak named in his honour on Wednesday in Italy's imposing Gran Sasso range.
Previously known as "The Gendarme", the 2,424 metre (7,953 ft) summit was renamed at a ceremony in a medieval chapel on the day that John Paul would have turned 85.
