Description (see definition): A conspicuous mountain 3 mi ESE of Adit Nunatak on the N side of Leppard Glacier, in Graham Land. The mountain was discovered and photographed from the air by Sir Hubert Wilkins on Dec. 20, 1928, and named "Mount Napier Birks." The feature was not reidentified by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in its 1947 survey of the area, and the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) subsequently gave the name Mount Birks (q.v.) to a mountain 40 mi northeastward. Following a Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) survey in 1955, the mountain named by Wilkins was definitely identified as the feature now described. Because of past confusion as to its identity, the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) has renamed it Mount Alibi; "Alibi" meaning "proof of presence elsewhere."
