Description (see definition): A conspicuous island-like nunatak with three rocky summits, the southernmost and highest, 360 meters. It rises above the ice of southeastern Mobiloil Inlet 8 mi SE of Kay Nunatak on the E coast of Antarctic Peninsula. The nunatak was first mapped by W.L.G.

It was subsequently photographed from the air by U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS), Sept. 1940; Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS), Aug. 1947; and Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE) (Trimetrogon air photography), Dec. 1947. Named by UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1961; when viewed from the air three dots and a dash, Morse code for the letter "V", are apparent on the surface of the feature.
