Narrative

A large nunatak in the stream of the Mawson Glacier, 13 miles WNW of Mt Douglas. It stands relatively little above the ice surface on the west, but downstream, on the east side, has towering black cliffs which make it a prominent landmark from the sea-ice north of the Nordenskjold Ice Tongue, some 50 miles to the north-east. Named by the Northern Survey Party of the NZTAE, 1956-58, because of its three summits. They established a survey station on its summit on 9 December 1957.
