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.
Name first appears on USFS Angeles National Forest map (1940).
Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1984.
