Narrative

Mountain, 1,790 m, which lies 3 mi ENE of the head of False Bay, Livingston Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The feature was known to American and British sealers as early as 1820-21, and has been variously known as Peak of Frezeland, Friezland Peak, and Friesland Peak. In the early 1900s the name Barnard, applied by Weddell in 1825 to nearby Needle Peak, was transferred to this mountain. The original name has now been restored; the spelling Friesland appears to have been more frequently used than any of the other versions. The name Barnard Point (q.v.) has since been approved for the nearby point at the SE side of False Bay.
