9C Condor Peak

Location: Los Angeles County, California

Named for the Endangered California Condor (Gymnogyps californianus), whose range once included this peak. Faust Havermale, who tramped the San Gabriels ca 1900, stated that the peak was so named because of the many Condors that nested there and claimed to have seen as many as twelve of these "monarchs of the air" circling the peak. No sightings have occurred since WWII.

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
