Names that other countries have for this feature:
The W extremity of a rock massif with four peaks, the highest 1,250 m, standing at the S side of the mouth of Riley Glacier, Palmer Land, and fronting on George VI Sound. It lies separated from Mount Dixey to the NE by a low ice-filled col, and from Mount Flower to the E by a small glacier. It appears that the massif of which this is the W extremity, was first photographed from the air on Nov. 23, 1935 by Lincoln Ellsworth and mapped from these photographs by W.L.G. Joerg. The point was surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE under Rymill, and was named in 1954 for Verner D. Carse, member of the BGLE, 1934-37.
