Description (see definition): Mountain, 1,465 m, standing 5.5 mi SSW of Cape Brown and forming the N limit of Douglas Range on the E side of Alexander Island. First seen and roughly charted from a distance in 1909 by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) under Charcot, who named it "Ile Nicolas II" after Nicholas II, then reigning tsar of Russia. The French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) maps showed it as an island, or possible headland, separated by a channel from Alexander Island. The coast in this vicinity was photographed from the air in 1937 by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE), but Charcot's name which was altered to "Cape Nicholas," was applied in error to the seaward bulge of Mount Calais, about 13 mi to the NNW Surveys in 1948 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) identified the feature originally named "Ile Nicolas II" by Charcot as the mountain described.
