Description (see definition): Rock peak, 1,105 m, standing at the S side of Richthofen Pass on the E coast of Graham Land. Probably first seen by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition (SwedAE) under Nordenskjold, 1901-04. The name "Cape McCarroll," for H.G. McCarroll of Detroit, MI, was given to the S side of Nordenskjold's "Richthofen Valley" (now Richthofen Pass) by Sir Hubert Wilkins on his flight of Dec. 20, 1928. The name has been modified and applied to the peak here described in order to maintain the intended relationship between the McCarroll and Richthofen features.
