A prominent peak, 2,050m, located 0.8 mi NNE of Wolak Peak on the east side of Njord Valley, in the Asgard Range, Victoria Land. Named by the NZ-APC in 1982 from a proposal by G.G.C. Claridge, soil scientist with the DSIR, New Zealand. One of a group of names from Norse mythology in Asgard Range and Jotunheim Valley. Named after Utgard, a fortress in Jotunheim, home of the giants, because it resembles a castle.
