Names that other countries have for this feature:
An independent cone, 1859m high, on the western slopes of Mt Erebus on Ross Island. From McMurdo Sound it appears as a perfect pyramid of black rock, standing out as a splendid mark against the background of the ice and almost on a line from Cape Royds to the present crater. It is exactly in the line of the fierce south-easterly winds which sweep round the shoulder of Mt Erebus at this level. Therefore, it has a deep moat or ditch over 30m high and is of slaggy kenyte. It was named by Debenham on the second ascent of Mt Erebus for F J Hooper, a steward of the BAE, 1910-13. Hooper was one of the party making the second ascent.
