Narrative

A sharply defined peak, 2100 feet above sea level on the Polar Plateau, south of Mt Wood and at the head of the David Glacier. It descends steeply to the David Glacier and the Ross Ice Shelf. Previously uncharted, it was used, with Mt Wood, as a reference (bearings and radar distance) for establishing a USARP field party on 6 November 1962, and was chosen to give a 90° angle to McMurdo and Hallett Stations. Its position was fixed by sun and lines of position and radar bearings. Named by DB McC Rainey of the Cartographic Branch of the NZ Dept of Lands and Survey for S/Sgt Arthur L Kring, navigator on many VX6-Squadron flights during he 1962-63 season when New Zealand field parties received logistic support by that squadron.
