Description (see definition): Mountain with a sharp, rocky, triangular peak surmounting the SE corner of Square Bay, 8 mi E of Camp Point on the W coast of Graham Land. The mountain was apparently first seen and roughly charted in 1909 by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) under Charcot. It was surveyed in 1936 by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) under Rymill and was photographed from the air in 1940 by the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS). The name, proposed by Col. Lawrence Martin, is for Phineas Wilcox, mate on the Hero, in which Captain Nathaniel B. Palmer explored the Antarctic mainland S of Deception Island in 1820.
