Narrative

N-most feature of Walton Mountains (q.v.), W Alexander Island, rising to c. 250m, was surveyed by BAS from "Fossil Bluff", 1974-75, and so named after the musical note, reflecting its small size and in association with the names of composers in this area (APC, 1980, p.5; BAS 250P sheets SR 19-20/9, 1-DOS 1978 and 2-DOS 1982; SR 19-20/13, 2-DOS 1984).
