Description (see definition): Ice-covered hill, 330 m, at the S side of the mouth of Evans Glacier on the E coast of Graham Land. This area was observed from the air by Sir Hubert Wilkins on Dec. 20, 1928. The feature was first charted as a point during 1947 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS). In 1955, Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) reported that the point is not marked by any rock exposures and merges so gradually with the ice of Evans Glacier that the hill is the feature to which the name should be applied. The descriptive name was given by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC).
