Narrative

An isolated, mainly snow-covered nunatak located about 10 mi SE of the Davies Escarpment and 14 mi SW of Nolan Pillar, at the S end of the Thiel Mountains. The name was proposed by Peter Bermel and Arthur Ford, co-leaders of the USGS Thiel Mountains party which surveyed the area in 1960-61. Named for Charles R. Lewis, USGS geologist who worked from various U.S. vessels research in the McMurdo Sound region and in the Balaena Islands during the 1955-56 season.
