Narrative

Cartografiada por el FIDS y fotografiada desde el aire por el RARE, en 1947. El FIDS le puso el nombre de la diosa mitológica escandinava Frigga, la "tejedora de las nubes", debido a que se observó la formación de una nube en la cumbre de esta montaña antes que en cualquier otro acciden te en la vecindad. El nombre actual corresponde al del barco factoría ballenero chileno "Orión", de 2.349 toneladas, integrante de la flota de Adolfo Andresen, con base en Punta Arenas, Chile, en 1914. Montaña de aproximadamente 1.570 metros de elevación, que se levanta al lado S del glaciar Anderson, a aproximadamente 6 millas a WNW de la punta Balder, en la costa E de la península Tierra de O'Higgins.
