Narrative

Sharp, pyramid-shaped peak over 1,125 m, standing in the NW part of the Blackwall Mountains on the S side of Neny Fjord, Graham Land. First roughly surveyed in 1936-37 by the BGLE under Rymill, and resurveyed in 1948-49 by the FIDS. The name was apparently first used by members of the RARE, 1947-48, under Ronne, and the FIDS, and derives from its location near Neny Fjord, and its resemblance to the Swiss Matterhorn.
