14L Copter Ridge

Location: Los Angeles County, California

Not named for anyone named Copter, or even for the memory of the unfortunate pilot who lost his life here, but (according to Pat Macha in his Aircraft Wrecks in the Mountains and Deserts of Southern California, 1908-90), only to commemorate the famous crash of a Bell-47 helicopter on this ridge (1953).

Name first appears on USGS Crystal Lake quad (1959).

Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1992.
