Cartographers are rarely honoured by the use of their name as a toponym (proper name of a topographic object). On Kili-manjaro, however, the first climber and geographer, Hans Meyer, commemorated two outstanding contemporaries known in cartography, Ravenstein and Hassenstein. He named lava rocks after them which protruded from their embrace of ice.
