History

Descriptive name given about 1827 by Captain Beechey (1831, map p. 328); presumably applied to a small feature or features on the eroded cliffs. Because it lacks a positive object for application, the name subsequently was transferred to the mountains behind the cliff. The same name has been applied to this mountain since it was first known to man."
