Narrative

running E-W and rising to 645m NE of Shoesmith Glacier, Horseshoe Island, Marguerite Bay, Fallières Coast, were surveyed and climbed by FIDS, 1957-59; so named because spindrift clouds, blowing off the heights, gave warning to FIDS parties on the island of approaching storms (APC, 1959a, p.11; DOS 310 Horseshoe Island sheet, 1961).
