30A Asbestos Mountain

Location: Riverside County, California

Named for the large asbestos deposits in the San Jacinto Mountains that were first mined as early as 1888 by the John D. Hoff Co. The unusual effects of nearby "Asbastos [sic] Camp Spring" were noted in the San Jacinto Searchlight (1894): "Its use generally blanches the face of the workmen to a ghastly pallor, and produces peculiar effects in other ways to the human frame".

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
