A mainly ice-free mountain (2,155 m) located 2.5 mi E of Mount Powell in the E part of the Thiel Mountains. The name was proposed by Peter Bermel and Arthur Ford, co-leaders of the USGS Thiel Mountains party which surveyed these mountains in 1960-61. Named for Charles D. Walcott, third director of the U.S. Geological Survey, 1894-1907 (https://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/gaz/scar/display_name.cfm?gaz_id=133369).
