Narrative

rising to 990m on W side of Scar Inlet, Oscar II Coast, was probably seen by SwAE in October 1902 at the time of the discovery of Richthofen Pass (q.v.); seen from the air by Wilkins, 20 December 1928, as N entrance of the pass in c. 65°50'S 62°15'W, and named Cape Fritsche after Carl B. Fritsche of Detroit, Mich. (Wilkins, 1929, p. 364 and map facing p.374; BA chart 3175, 1934). Jasonfjellet, in association with Jason Peninsula (q.v.) (Aagaard, 1930, end map). Cabo Fritsche (Argentina. IGM map, 1946). Cape McCarroll, in error (McCarroll Peak, q.v.) (USBGN, 1956, p.208). Following survey of the area by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in 1955, the name Mount Fritsche was applied to the present feature in accordance with Wilkins' positioning of the name Cape Fritsche on the N side of the pass (APC, 1958, p.5; BA chart 3570, 29.ix.1961). Cape (Mount) Fritsche (USHO, 1963, p.332a).
