Narrative

A high snowy peak 3 miles WSE of Shapeless Mountain, and several hundred feet lower than Shapeless. It lies immediately north-west of the immense icefalls of the Upper Wright Glacier. Named by the Northern Survey Party of the NZTAE, 1956-58, which established a survey on its summit on 24 December 1957. So named because the party climbed the mountain in the mistaken belief that they were on Shapeless Mountain, which is obscured from the south and west by this peak.
