- A Crescent shaped rock west of Torlyn Mountain on the Mawson Coast. Douglas Mawson landed on it in a plane on February 13, 1931, during the BANZARE, and named it for J.H. Scullin, Prime Minister of Australia. In Jan-Feb 1931 Norwegians charted it and named it Mount Klarius Mikkelsen. The Mawson naming has become accepted and Mikkelsen Peak is now the highest feature on the monolith.
