A sharp peak rising to 1,640 m at the E side of the mouth of Cole Glacier in southern Graham Land. The peak was photographed from the air by the USAS on Sept. 28, 1940. Surveyed by the FIDS in Dec. 1958. The name derives from its shape, which suggests the conical wooden pin used in splicing, known as a fid. Named by UK-APC.
