13A Winston Peak

Location: Los Angeles County, California

Named after L.C. "Lid" Winston (n.d.). According to S.B. Show, Winston was a Pasadena banker, who was caught in a blizzard while on a hunting trip in these mountains. His frozen remains were later discovered on this ridge (1900). Later the high point was named Winston Peak, and then extended to the neighboring ridge.

Peak called "Mount Winston" on the original HPS List.

Name first appears on USGS Waterman Mountain quad (1959).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List. Weldon Heald climbed this peak in 1941.
