Narrative

Rocky promontory rising to 830 m, marking the N side of the entrance to Neny Fjord on the W coast of Graham Land. First charted by the BGLE, 1934-37, under Rymill. The name was given by members of East Base of the USAS, 1939-41, whose base was located on nearby Stonington Island, and derives from snow-filled clefts along the face of the promontory giving the appearance of a Roman numeral IV.
