Narrative

A peak immediately north of the snout of the Lower Victoria Glacier where it creeps westward into the Victoria Valley from the Wilson Piedmont Glacier. Named by the Northern Survey Party of the NZTAE, 1956-58, which extablished a survey station on its summit on 8 November 1957. So named because of the extremely trying weather and surface conditions when travelling towards and surveying from this peak.
