Narrative

A huge, flat-topped massif on the Scott Coast of Victoria Land. The massif extends S from Pa Tio Tio Gap to Fry Glacier and forms the S block of the Kirkwood Range (Robertson Massif forms the N block). Shoulder Mountain, Mount Belgrave and Mount Creak rise from the S part of the massif. Steep coastal cliffs and projecting ridges mark the E margin, but there is a gentle slope W from the massif's broad, plateaulike snow summit. This feature was originally named Mount Endeavour by the N.Z. Northern Survey Party of CTAE in Oct. 1957, but on subsequent N.Z. and U.S. maps the name was identified as an 1800 m summit 3.5 miles NW of Mount Creak. Following additional mapping by USGS in 1999 and consultation between US-ACAN and NZGB, the name of the S block of Kirkwood Range was amended to Endeavour Massif to provide terminology better suited to the complex nature of the feature. For the sake of historical continuity, the name Mount Endeavour (q.v.) has been retained for the summit NW of Mt Creak. Both features are named after HMNZS Endeavour (formerly John Biscoe), supply ship to the 1957 N.Z. Northern Survey Party.
