Narrative

An isolated mountain (1,270 m) at the SE margin of Forster Ice Piedmont on the W side of Antarctic Peninsula. The mountain has steep rock cliffs on its S side. First roughly surveyed by BGLE. 1936-37. Photographed from the air by RARE, 1947, and resurveyed by FIDS, 1958. The name applied by UK-APC is suggestive of the shape of the feature, which resembles a recumbent lion.
