Names that other countries have for this feature:
A sharp rock peak (605 m) that marks the E-most summit of Mason Spur at the S end of Scott coast, Victoria Land. The name appears in a 1987 sketch map and report by geologist Anne Wright-Grassham, (earlier Anne C. Wright), who had been a member of the 1983-84 New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology field party to Mason Spur. So named because of the common presence of a pair of snow petrels seen flying around the peak over several days in November 1983. It was concluded they were nesting there.
