Names that other countries have for this feature:
rising to 925m on N side of Leppard Glacier, Oscar II Coast, was photographed from the air on 20 December 1928 by Wilkins, who named it Mount Napier Birks after Napier Birks, of Adelaide, Australia (Wilkins, 1929, Fig. 25, p.265 and p.366, 376). Following survey by FIDS from Hope Bay in 1947, Wilkins' Fig. 25 with caption Mount Napier Birks could not be recognized, but his Fig. 26, p.365, with caption Crane Channel and Foyn Island , was identified. Crane Glacier (q.v.) was accepted for the glacier shown on the latter photograph, and Mount Birks (q.v.) was placed on its N side, this being the relationship of the two features reported by Wilkins. Following survey by FIDS from Hope Bay in 1955, Wilkins' Fig. 25 was identified as the present feature, and it became clear that, on the photographic evidence of his outward flight, Wilkins applied the name Crane Channel to Leppard Glacier (q.v.) and, on the photographic evidence of his return flight, applied this name to what is now accepted as Crane Glacier (q.v.). In reference to this confusion in original naming, the present feature was renamed Mount Alibi, as being present elsewhere (APC, 1958, p.4; BA chart 3570, 29.ix.1961).
