Narrative

rising to 295m on Barton Peninsula, King George Island, was roughly mapped by Ferguson in 1913-14 and so named probably after the usage of whalers (Ferguson, 1921, map p.38; BA, 1930, p.59; APC, 1955, p.16; BA chart 1774, 14.ix.1962); charted by DI, 1934-35. Colina Noel (Argentina. MM chart ZZ, 1948; Pierrou, 1970, p.550). Cerro Cortado [=shapely hill] (Argentina. MM chart CHI-I, 1954). Cerro Noel ([incorrectly referring to the summit of the ice cap to the NE] Argentina. MM chart CHI-I, 1954; [correctly indicated] Cordini, 1955, p.75; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.212). The hill was photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57, and surveyed from the ground by FIDS, 1957-59.
