Location: Los Angeles County, California
Named ca 1900 for the reputedly lovely Emma Pallett, whose ranching family built their home on Big Rock Creek above Devil's Punch Bowl. Her brothers were hunters who often climbed the San Gabriels. Memoirs of Collie LePage, a Palmdale pioneer who knew the Pallets, are currently locked up in probate and won't be available until late next year. We eagerly await that moment.
Early maps incorrectly noted the summit as elevation 5063' (now known as "Old Mount Emma" by the HPS). Corrected to present location on Mount Emma topo (1940).
Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
