Description (see definition): Peak in the W part of the Havre Mountains, 1,500 m, situated 3 mi NE of Cape Vostok on Alexander Island. In 1821 the Russian expedition under Bellingshausen sighted a very high mountain in this area to which they gave the name "Gora Svyatogo Georgiya Pobedonostsa" (Mountain of Saint George the Victor). Though the position reported by them for this mountain would place it in the sea, it has been assumed that the peak described here is the same feature. It was first mapped in detail from air photos taken by the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE), 1947-48, by Searle of the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1960. The translated form of the name suggested by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) has been approved.
