Apparantly, at the base of the mountain is Ajax Tavern. But that could have been named after the mountain.

You should go there and find out. It would be a nice vacation?

Ajax was the former name. Locals still use it.

I was going to say, “Because it reminds them of washing powder or bathroom cleanser!” But, of course, I’d be wrong.

Ajax is stronger than dirt!

@missingbite‘s got it right. Ajax was the former name of the mountain.
