Narrative

rising to 1570m between Anderson Glacier and Sleepnir Glacier, Foyn Coast, was photographed from the air by RARE and surveyed from the ground by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in 1947; in association with Mount Odin (q.v.), named after the Norse goddess Frigga, the "cloud spinner", because cloud was observed to form on the summit of this peak earlier than on any other feature in the vicinity (BA chart 3570, 27.vi.1952; APC, 1955, p.10; DCS 601 sheet 66 62, 1955). Pico Frigga (Argentina. MM chart 110, 1957). Montaña Newbery, so called by AAE after Dr Eduardo Newbery, a pioneer of Argentine aviation (Argentina. MD, 1978, letter N).
