Narrative

Fue cartografiado por primera vez en 1946 por el FIDS, que le dio el nombre de Cairn Hill debido a que se eligió como señal un montón de piedras (cairn) al E de las dos cimas. El nombre actual corresponde al apellido del cabo 1º mecánico de aviación Exequiel Garrido Pino, Fuerza Aérea de Chile, quien participó en la componente aérea de la Expedición Antártica Chilena de 1946-1947, a bordo del transporte "Angamos" de la Armada de Chile. Cerro con dos cimas, de aproximadamente 460 metros de elevación, situado a unas 2 millas al E de la playa NE de bahía Duse, península Tabarín, en el extremo NE de la península de Tierra de O'Higgins.
