Narrative

Prominent ice-covered mountain, 2,195 m, which stands 10 mi inland from George VI Sound and marks the S limit of Douglas Range on Alexander Island. First photographed from the air on Nov. 23, 1935 by Lincoln Ellsworth and mapped from these photos by W.L.G. Joerg. Its E side was roughly surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE and resurveyed in 1949 by the FIDS. Named by the FIDS for Edred, Saxon king of England, 946-955. The W face of the mountain was mapped from air photos taken by the RARE, 1947-48, by Searle of the FIDS in 1960.
