rising to c.1200 m on E side of Simler Snowfield, Graham Coast, was roughly charted by FAE, 1908-10, in 1909 and called Mont Garcia, presumably in association with the original French name for Loqui Point (q.v.) (Charcot, 1912, Pl.3; Bongrain, 1914, vue 18 following p.60). Mount Garcia (BA, 1916, photograph facing p.407; 1948, views facing p.204). Following air photography by FIDASE, 1956-57, and in association with the names of pioneers of ski-mountaineering grouped in this area, the mountain was named after Mathias Zdarsky (d.1940), Austrian ski-runner, inventor of the first dependable ski binding, and author of Lilienfeld Skilauf-Technik (Hamburg, 1896), one of the earliest skiing manuals, and BeitraÂge zur Lawinenkunde (Wien, 1929) (APC, 1959a, p.12).
