Description (see definition): Conspicuous rock buttress, 905 m, marking the S end of the N group of Walton Mountains, Alexander Island. First seen from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth on Nov. 23, 1935, and roughly mapped from photos obtained on that flight by W.L.G. Joerg. Remapped in greater detail from air photos taken by the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE), 1947-48, by Searle of the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1960. So named by UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) because the characteristic shape of the buttress is recognizable at a considerable distance from all quarters.
