Narrative

A prominent peak rising to 4368 m at the S extremity of Craddock Massif in the Sentinel Range, Ellsworth Mountains. The name Mount Craddock was originally recommended by US-ACAN in 1965 for the present-day Craddock Massif (q.v.) but subsequent maps limited Mount Craddock to the massif's southernmost peak, a position that became established over years. To avoid confusion and to fix the position of the name, US-ACAN redefined Mount Craddock in 2006 to apply to the southernmost peak described above. Named after J. Campbell Craddock (1930-2006), leader of a University of Minnesota expedition (1962-63) that made geological investigations and cartographic surveys in the Sentinel and Heritage Ranges of the Ellsworth Mountains. During 1960-61, Craddock led a Minnesota geological expedition in examining the Jones Mountains.
