Narrative

highest point (745m) on Larrouy Island, Graham Coast, at SW end of Grandidier Channel, was photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57, and surveyed by FIDS-RN from "Prospect Point", 1957-58; so named because the peak is conspicuous from a great distance and useful as a navigation mark for the passage of the channel (APC, 1959a, p.10; BA chart 3573, 26.viii.1960). Pico Pilot (Chile. DNH chart 1502, 1962). Pico García, so called by CAE in association with Cape Garcia (q.v.) (Chile. DNH chart 1503, 1963; IHA, 1974, p.135).
