I am uneasy with the "Mount" metaphor because it may suggest to the lay-person that there is some kind of problem that has to be solved with evolution. But, mutation combined with natural selection means that there is perhaps really no problem. In a sense, natural selection erodes away the mountain, so it's actually, I think, Mount Seemingly Improbable :) That's my view, but then I am an awkward chap.
