Names that other countries have for this feature:
A steep-walled granite bastion in places mantled by basalt cones around which the Koettlitz Glacier follows on its descent to Walcott Bay. At its southern end it is joined by a narrow ridge to The Pyramid, but when the Koettlitz Glacier occupied Pyramid Trough it was completely surrounded by ice. Feature shown on: NZ AntTopo50-MH10
Its northern tip was a jump-off point for a traverse to Heald Island made by University Personnel in January 1961. Named by the Victoria University of Wellington Antarctic Expedition (VUWAE), 1960-61, because of its shape.
