Narrative

Conspicuous peak, 1,400 m, overlooking the S shore of Briand Fjord in Flandres Bay, on the W coast of Graham Land. The SE entrance point of Briand Fjord was charted by the FrAE under Charcot, 1903-05, and named "Pointe Bayet" for Charles Bayet, Director of Instruction and member of the Commission of Scientific Work of the expedition. As air photos show no well-defined point in this position the name has been applied to this conspicuous peak.
