Wetpants Peak is a very damp mountain peak in the rainforests of Tasmania.
The name originates from a Forestry party in the 1950s including Mr Tom Stephens and Mr Ken Escott. Ken later explained that because the weather had been fine and sunny all the time on the mountain we paddled in the tarn for the second time. Tom then got dressed and I was just about to when a gust of wind blew Tom's hat out onto the water. It seems that he jumped in the water again to get it. That was the coldest water I have ever swum in but possibly the fastest time over 25 yards. I was not wearing jeans at the time, but probably underpants or nothing.
Tom Stevens was a member of the Nomenclature Board so he is the one who most likely submitted the name. (Details)
