SCAR Gazetteer Information: Each place can have one or more entries in the SCAR Composite Gazetteer, dependant on its origin. By viewing an individual entry, you may see multiple references to the same place. SCAR uses a more general feature type coding, so each place will, in general, have multiple feature types.

A peak (790 m) along the W side of Koerwitz Glacier, about midway between the main summits of Medina Peaks and Mount Salisbury, in the Queen Maud Mountains. First mapped by USGS from surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1960-64. So named by NZGSAE, 1969-70, because of the occurrence of large, whitish pegmatite dykes in a rock wall at the SE spur of the peak.
