A small pyramidal shaped mountain, formed similarly to Altar Mountain, and projecting about 150m above a prominent bench at the head of a small westerly directed dry valley extending from the north-south aligned dry valley on the West Beacon western side, south of the Upper Taylor Glacier. With Aztec Mountain its shape and similarity suggests a close resemblance to the pyramidal ceremonial platforms used by the Maya and Aztec civilisations.
