Narrative

A prominent peak of 910 m and of pyramidal shape when viewed from Larsen Ice Shelf, standing between Rachel and Starbuck Glaciers on the E coast of Graham Land. The naming by UK-APC is one in a group in this vicinity that reflects a whaling theme. Baleen whales are distinguished by the presence of a sieve of horny baleen (whalebone) plates suspended from the upper jaw, and by the absence of teeth.
