Narrative

A peak rising to c. 600 m on the E side of the Fossil Bluff massif, Alexander Island. For many years this peak was known to BAS workers as "Sphinx," a name already in use. To avoid duplication, the UK-APC in 1987 applied the name Giza Peak to this feature in reference to the site of the colossal statue at El Giza, Egypt.
