Narrative

A mountain with twin summits, about 1188m and 1127m high, standing at the south side of Debenham Glacier about 6 miles west-south-west of the Lizards Foot in Victoria Land. Discovered and named by the NAE, 1901-04, for Lieutenant Edward R G R Evans (later Admiral Lord Mountevans) of the Morning, relief ship of the expedition. Evans was also with the BAE, 1910-13. It was from this mountain that he took this title "Mountevans".
