Names that other countries have for this feature:
Mountain with a sharp, rocky, triangular peak surmounting the SE corner of Square Bay, 8 mi E of Camp Point on the W coast of Graham Land. The mountain was apparently first seen and roughly charted in 1909 by the FrAE under Charcot. It was surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE under Rymill and was photographed from the air in 1940 by the USAS. The name, proposed by Col. Lawrence Martin, is for Phineas Wilcox, mate on the Hero, in which Capt. Nathaniel B. Palmer explored the Antarctic mainland S of Deception Island in 1820.
