Names that other countries have for this feature:
A buttressed peak of the Royal Society Range between Mts Rücker and Hooker, and particularly prominent from the upper parts of the Blue Glacier. From it a ridge runs down to Armitage Saddle, and this ridge forms the watershed between tributaries of the Blue Glacier on the north and the head of the Walcott Glacier on the south. Explored by the Blue Glacier Party of the NZTAE, 1956-58, in September 1957, and named because it forms the salient of the Royal Society Range, where the summit turns south-west towards Mts Rücker and Huggins.
