Narrative

Conspicuous mountain of red rock, 675 m, dominating the small peninsula just W of Mascias Cove, on the W coast of Graham Land. In 1898 the BelgAE under Gerlache applied the name "Ile Banck" to a feature which was charted as an island separated from the mainland by a narrow channel. Air photos show it is actually a small peninsula, on which the most prominent feature is this mountain. The name Mount William (q.v.), given by Biscoe in 1832 to a mountain which he described as being on the mainland but now identified on Anvers Island, has been used for the feature here described.
