Names that other countries have for this feature:
rising to c. 640m on Wright Peninsula, Adelaide Island, forming S entrance point of Stonehouse Bay. The point on the coast was called Punta Cholchol by CAE, 1947, after a place in Chile (Chile. DNH chart LII, 1947; IHA, 1974, p.75). The peak was surveyed by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in October 1948 and named Sighing Peak, because of the persistent sighing of the wind at the summit, even when calm at sea level (APC, 1955, p.19; BAS 250P sheet SQ 19-20/14 (Ext.), 1-DOS 1978). Cabo Rosario [=ros- ary cape], referring to the point on the coast (Argentina. MD, 1978, letter R).
