Names that other countries have for this feature:
A mountain (c. 1,500 m) between the heads of Arago and Woodbury Glaciers on the W coast of Graham Land. Mapped by the FIDS from photos taken by Hunting Aerosurveys Ltd. in 1956-57. So named by the UK-APC in 1960 because the feature marked the end of the route from Orel Ice Fringe by which members of the FIDS at Danco Island station had hoped in 1956 to reach Forbidden Plateau. A very steep drop on the E side of the summit precludes further progress.
