Narrative

A very prominent and beautiful orange-colored pillar of Beacon sandstone, 2.2 mi (4½) W of the summit of Flagship Mountain at the W end of Viking Hills, Convoy Range, Victoria Land. The pillar is flanked to the W by steep blue ice and a huge windscoop from Flight Deck Névé and rises sheer from a large ice-free area to the north. The feature was geologically mapped by VUWAE, 1976-77, led by Christopher J. Burgess who named it after a similar feature in Wales, Great Britain.
