19H Heaps Peak

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Named for Fred Heaps (d. 1923), an area pioneer, who founded Heaps Ranch a few miles east of Skyforest, below the east slope of this peak (ca. 1882). In her Saga of the San Bernardinos local historian Pauliena LaFuze warmed up a notorious old piece of local gossip concerning the death of Heaps' niece, Clara Alison (who we are told, placed herself between a bullet and her husband) following a heated argument between him and her uncle at the ranch (1918).

Delisted from HPS Peak List when local development and heliport on summit made peak an unworthy drive-up (1969).

Name first appears on USGS Redland quad (1909).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List. Weldon Heald climbed this peak in 1942.
