John Vonderlin & I want to know: What’s the name of the promontory in the foreground?

If there isn’t a name, can we name it?

Asks John Vonderlin: Do you recognize the coastal stretch in the picture? I assume the far promontory is the one just south of Devil’s Slide, but don’t know the name of the nearer one. Enjoy. John


The image comes from J. Smeaton Chase’s Chase 1911 book, “California Coast Trails.”

June says: I told John I didn’t the know name of it–but that a Texas oilman had plans to build a house, incorporating the WWII bunker, into the design–but that was in the 1970s and never came to pass.

John says: It might already have a name, Devil’s Slide Rock.
