Deadman Summit is a mountain pass in the Sierra Nevada in Mono County, California. It crosses the northern rim of the Long Valley Caldera, connecting the northern end of the Owens River watershed with Mono Lake via U.S. Highway 395. The pass, and the nearby creek with the same name, were named for the decapitated body of a murder victim found in the vicinity around 1868.
