Summit Signatures

22B Keller Peak (LO)

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Named for Francis D. Keller. Gudde believes he was a native of Illinois, who settled, farmed and logged the area in 1854.

A Serrano Indian name for this peak may have been "Kavíktaviat", meaning so "very deep or steep" that it could not be climbed.

Despite a fire lookout tower built by the CCC which was the second in this forest (1927), this summit has been repeatedly burned-most recently in the devastating Bear Creek Fire (1970). This is the only remaining K,X-B design tower left in California.

There is also a Keller Creek.

Name first appears on USGS Redlands topo (1901).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List. Weldon Heald climbed this peak in 1937.
