Jim Blakley Notes
Elevation: 5,570 feet. The peak located on the southern edge of the San Rafael Mountain Range is seldom visited except for Sierra Club Peak Bagers who want to add it to their collection of peaks over 5,000 feet tall that they have climbed. The peak is covered with a dense cover of chaparral so it can only be climbed on a narrow trail branching off the McKinley Fire Trail.

Sierra Club Hundred Peaks Section Notes
Named by the USFS after the "Holy Cross" of Jesus. Name of peak is derived from the nearby Cañada de Santa Cruz which is first cited on the diseño of the 8,919 acre (Mexican Land Grant) Rancho Tequepis (1845).
Name first appears on USGS San Barbara National Forest map (1926). The peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
