Narrative

A mountain (c. 600 m) rising 0.5 mi ESE of Waterboat Point, Paradise Harbor, Danco Coast. The feature was originally called "Mount Lunch-Ho!" by T.W. Bagshawe and M.C. Lester, because on the first ascent in 1921 lunch was eaten on the summit. Renamed by the Chilean Antarctic Expedition (1950-51) after Swedish engineer Bertil Frodin, who conducted geological and glaciological studies on the expedition.
