four rock towers rising to 825 m on S side of Zonda Glacier (q.v.). An Argentine refuge hut was established in this vicinity by army personnel from "General San Marti n", 26 September 1958, and called "Refugio Nogal de Salda n" from the Argentine town Salda n, where Gen. J.de San Marti n stayed in 1814 after giving up command of his northern army through ill health (Pierrou, 1970, p.551). Following survey by BAS from "Stonington Island", 1971-72, the feature was named Zonda Towers in association with the glacier (BAS 250P sheet SR 19-20/6, 1-DOS 1978; APC, 1980, p.6).
