Narrative

Conspicuous nunatak, 670 m, standing between Frireka and Riley Glaciers and 0.5 mi inland from George VI Sound, on the W coast of Palmer Land. This nunatak was first photographed from the air on Nov. 23, 1935 by Lincoln Ellsworth, and was mapped from these photographs by W.L.G. Joerg. First surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE under Rymill. Resurveyed in 1948 by the FIDS, and so named by them because the nunatak marks the end of the sledge route from the Wordie Ice Shelf, down Eureka Glacier, to George VI Sound.
