Names that other countries have for this feature:
An independent cone at an elevation of 1,800 m on the W slopes of Mount Erebus on Ross Island. From McMurdo Sound it appears as a perfect pyramid of black rock, standing out as a splendid mark against the background of the ice and almost on a line from Cape Royds to the crater of Mount Erebus. The cone itself is about 100 m high and is surrounded by a deep moat or ditch, caused by the sweeping action of strong winds. It was named by F. Debenham on the second ascent of Mount Erebus for F.J. Hooper, a steward of the BrAE, 1910-13. Hooper was one of the party making the second ascent.
