An ice free summit 0.8 mi NE of Mount Falconer, rising to 700 m on the N side of Taylor Valley, Victoria Land. The name Henderson Hill appears in a 1968 report and geologic sketch map of the area prepared by the Victoria University's Antarctic Expeditions (VUWAE), 1965-66, and is presumably named after Robert A.
