A peak, 2,340 m, surmounting a small ice-free mesa between Outpost Nunataks and Ricker Hills, in the Prince Albert Mountains, Victoria Land. Mapped by the Southern Party of NZGSAE, 1962-63, which so named it because of coloring which suggested "hellfire and brimstone." (https://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/gaz/scar/display_name.cfm?gaz_id=122943).
