Name ID: 124903 Place ID: 4363

Mainly ice-covered mountain, 2,590 m, standing between Mounts Egbert and Ethelred at the head of Tumble Glacier, in the Douglas Range of Alexander Island. Probably first observed by Lincoln Ellsworth, who photographed the E side of the Douglas Range from the air on Nov. 23, 1935. Its E face was roughly surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE under Rymill. Resurveyed in 1948 by the FIDS and named for Ethelwulf, Saxon king of England, 839-858. The W face of the mountain was mapped from air photos taken by the RARE, 1947-48, by Searle of the FIDS in 1960.
