Description (see definition): Peak, 1,000 m, surmounting Fournier Ridge, Desko Mountains, on Rothschild Island. Probably seen from a distance by Bellingshausen in 1821, Charcot in 1909, and the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) in 1936. It was observed and photographed from the air by the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS), 1939-41, and mapped as the prominent NW peak of the island. Mapped 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, and from U.S. Landsat imagery of February 1975. So named by UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) because of difficulty in identifying the peak during the map compilation.
