Narrative

Ice-covered hill which rises to 2,030 m and projects 610 m above the surrounding ice sheet, situated on the plateau of Graham Land 10 mi E of the head of Neny Fjord and close N of the head of Wyatt Glacier. First surveyed in 1940 by the USAS, on whose field charts the hill is labeled "Sphinx." Resurveyed in 1946 by the FIDS who gave the present name because of the hill's resemblance to a wicker beehive.
