High Mountain's 'Marry Me' Rock

IMG_8907
One of the landmarks near the summit at High Mountain is a  graffiti-scarred rock outcropping (upcropping?)  that I have called as "Marry Me" ever since I heard the tale of a young man who hiked up to the summit with his girlfriend long long ago.

He had climbed to the summit and painted "Marry me?" on the rock. Alas, the story goes, his girlfriend was so miffed that he made her hike up the steep mountainside that she answered "No."

On recent visits, I noticed that someone has downgraded the proposal to "Prom?"

If anyone knows more about the "Marry Me" rock legend, please let me know.
