A nunatak approximately 7.4km long east to west and 1.5-3km wide, in the Mackay Glacier near its south side, and opposite Mount Gran approximately 14km due north. Feature shown on: NZ AntTopo50-MD07
The Northern Survey Party of the New Zealand Trans-Antarctic Expedition, 1956-58, established a survey station on its summit on 22 November 1957. They named it because it was necessary to make a detour on the way up the Mackay Glacier to pass south of the nunatak.
