Summit Signatures

22D Sugarloaf Mountain

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Name is derived from the appearance of this summit. John Robinson, notes that it resembles "a prolate hemispheroid, hence the name". Originally a descriptive term for the distinctive 1oaf-like" shape of sugar as it was sold in general stores before the era of modem packaging. It eventually became widespread as a generic orthographic term for features whose appearance recalls this shape-when so used it becomes a single word.

The mountain was known as Ata'npa't to the Yuhavetum Serrano Indians, and was a sacred site.

While not named, it is first noted by elevation 8843' (Wheeler 1878).

Its USGS benchmark reads "Loaf".

Name first appears on USGS Big Bear quad (1901).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List. Weldon Heald climbed this peak in 1938.
