Narrative

The northernmost peak in the Worcester Range, 2770m high, lying north-west of Moore Bay, on the west side of the Ross Ice Shelf. Discovered by the NAE, 1901-04, which named this peak for Sir Alfred Harmsworth, later Viscount Northcliffe, a generous contributor to the expedition. This peak was ascended in 1957 by three members of the New Zealand Party of the TAE, 1956-58. They were Arnold Heine, Guyon Warren and Bernard Gunn. This was the first ascent of a major peak in Victoria Land.
