Names that other countries have for this feature:
A uniform, sharp cone, about 1889m high, standing isolated above Cape May and nearer the western edge of the Ross Ice Shelf than the main range. Discovered by the NAE, 1901-04, in December 1902 and so named because it was the most salient feature in view when the Southern Polar Party was abreast of it on Christmas Day.
