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 victim found in the vicinity around 1868.

Deadman Summit is commonly traversed by travelers from Southern California seeking recreation in the June Lake, June Mountain, and Mono Lake areas.
