Names that other countries have for this feature:
The southernmost of two rugged, rocky knolls, 550 mi, standing 10 mi WNW of the summit of Mount Bagshawe on the W coast of Palmer Land and overlooking Gadarene Lake and George VI Sound. The feature was first seen and photographed from the air on Nov. 23, 1935 by Lincoln Ellsworth, and was mapped from these photographs by W.L.G. Joerg. It was roughly surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE under Rymill, and resurveyed in 1948 by the FIDS who erected a cairn on the summit. Named by FIDS for its association with Gadarene Lake (q.v.) and the incident of the Gadarene swine.
