A ridgelike mountain, 2334 m, that forms the south end of the Lashly Mountains near the polar plateau of Victoria Land. There is much exposed rock on the south cliff and east spur of the mountain. Named by US-ACAN in 2006 after Stanley P. Wisneski III, who served the U.S. Antarctic Program as a senior manager for two successive contractors to the National Science Foundation, the ITT and ASA. He worked in several planning and implementation divisions in support of logistics, operations and engineering at both McMurdo and South Pole Stations, serving for two winters and 11 summer field seasons, from 1985-99.
