Names that other countries have for this feature:
Mountain rising at the E side of Simler Snowfield, between Barilari and Holtedahl Bays on the W coast of Graham Land. First charted and named "Mont Garcia" by the FrAE under Charcot, 1908-10, presumably in association with his nearby "Cap Garcia." Charcot later transferred "Cap Garcia" (now Cape Garcia) to the N entrance of Barilari Bay, leaving the mountain name on the S side. To avoid confusion with Cape Garcia on the other side of Barilari Bay, the UK-APC altered the name of this mountain in 1959 to Mount Zdarsky. Named for Mathias Zdarsky, Austrian pioneer exponent of ski-mountaineering, inventor of the first dependable ski binding, and author of one of the earliest skiing manuals.
