Narrative

rising to c. 200m on N side of Prince Gustav Channel, Trinity Peninsula, following survey by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in December 1945 was so named from the rock crystals collected at the foot of the hill (APC, 1955, p.8; BAS 250 sheet SP 21-22/13, 1-DOS 1974). Cabo Carry, probably referring in error to Corry Island (q.v.) (Argentina. IAA map, [1959a]). An Argentine refuge hut, called "San Nicolás", was established near the hill by personnel from "Esperanza" in 1963 (Argentina. IAA, 1965, p.416).Crystal Mountain 61°59'S 57°55'W, ice-covered and rising to 620m S of Bolinder Bluff, King George Island, was so called by PAE (Birkenmajer, 1984, p.168 and map Fig.9, p.172). Kryszta owa Góra (Birkenmajer, 1984, p.168).
