A mountain (1,940 m) at the N side of the head of Boggs Valley, near the center of Helliwell Hills. Mapped by USGS from surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1960-63. Named by US-ACAN for Frans G. Van der Hoeven, seismologist and leader of the USARP-sponsored Victoria Land Traverse, 1959-60. The 1,530 mile seismic and topographic traverse in Tucker Sno-Cat vehicles took a roughly triangular course, beginning at Hut Point Peninsula, Ross Island, and ascending to the plateau of Victoria Land via Skelton Glacier. From there a NW course was followed on interior plateau to 7109S, 13912E. The party returned eastward, keeping S of the 72S parallel to 7237S, 16132E (E side of Outback Nunataks), from where the party was evacuated by aircraft of U.S. Navy Squadron VX-6.
