Isolated mountain mass with several rounded snow-covered summits, the highest 1,500 m, overlooking Handel Ice Piedmont between Haydn and Schubert Inlets in the W central part of Alexander Island. First seen and photographed from a distance by Lincoln Ellsworth on his trans-Antarctic flight of Nov. 23, 1935, and partially mapped from these photos by W.L.G. Joerg. Resighted and photographed from the air by the USAS, 1939-41, and by the RARE 1947-48, under Ronne, who named it for R. Admiral Leo O. Colbert, head of the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, which furnished equipment for the expedition. Remapped in detail from RARE air photos by Searle of the FIDS in 1960.
