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.

Name Latitude Longitude Feature Type
Endeavour, Mount (NZL) 76° 33' 00.0" S 162° 00' 00.0" E Mountain
Name ID: 113240 Place ID: 4248

An 1810m summit, 1 mile N of the base of Ketchum Ridge in the S part of Endeavour Massif, Kirkwood Range, Victoria Land. The name Mount Endeavour was given to the S block of the Kirkwood Range by the N.Z. Northern Survey Party of CTAE in Oct. 1957, but in subsequent N.Z. and U.S. maps the name was identified as the 1810m summit described above. Following additional mapping by USGS in 1999 and consultation between US-ACAN and NZGB, the name Endeavour Massif (q.v.) was approved for the S block of the Kirkwood Range. For the sake of historical continuity the name Mount Endeavour has been retained for the summit near Ketchum Ridge. The summit and the massif are named after HMNZS Endeavour (formerly John Biscoe), supply ship to the 1957 N.Z. Northern Survey Party.
