Narrative

Nunatak, 1,980 m, standing at the W side of Cassidy Glacier and Quartermain Mountains in Victoria Land. Nearly vertical cliffs of columnar dolerite rise 150 m above glacier level at the E end. So named by the BrNAE (1901-04), on their western journey in 1903, because they made a food depot there, for use on their return.
