Narrative

A volcanic peak, 1008 m, located 1.75 miles east of Lake Porkchop on Scott Coast. An NZGS geological party led by D.N.B. Skinner, 1977-78, described the peak as the easternmost volcano on the south side of Roaring Valley. Named by New Zealand Geographic Board (NZGB) in 1994. The name is suggested by an outcrop of black lava on pale granite which, when viewed from the south, resembles the head of a seahorse.
