Narrative

A peak rising to c. 745 m near the center of the Fossil Bluff massif, E Alexander Island. For many years this was known to BAS workers by the unofficial descriptive name "Pyramid," a name already in use. To avoid duplication, in 1987 the UK-APC applied a new name after Khufu, second Pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty of Egypt, who erected the Great Pyramid of El Giza.
