Names that other countries have for this feature:
An active volcano, 4069m high, which forms the summit of Ross Island. Discovered and named by Ross on 28 January for the 370 ton vessel from which he discovered the volcano. It is the loftiest active volcano in the Antarctic and has been ascended twice, first by a party under David in 1908, and secondly by a party under Priestley in 1912. The climb presents little difficulty, and in 1912 sledges were pulled to a height of about 2743m.
