Description (see definition): Prominent peak-shaped landmark near the extreme W end of Thurston Island, about 8 mi ENE of Cape Flying Fish. Discovered by members of the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS) in flights from the ship Bear in February 1940, and photographed at that time by E.B. Perce. The peak was plotted from air photos taken by U.S. Navy (USN) OpHjp in December 1946, and was observed by personnel of the U.S. Navy (USN) Bellingshausen Sea Expedition in February 1960. So named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) because rock exposures on the peak serve as a mark for ships approaching Thurston Island from the west.
