Frontier Mountain (72°59′S 160°20′E) is a large, mainly ice-free mountain, 2,805 metres (9,200 ft) high, situated 20 nautical miles (37 km) south-southeast of Roberts Butte of the Outback Nunataks, Victoria Land, and 11 nautical miles (20 km) west-northwest of the Sequence Hills, near the edge of the featureless, interior ice plateau of Antarctica. It was named by the northern party of the New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition, 1962–63, because of its geographical location. This mountain lies situated on the Pennell Coast, a portion of Antarctica lying between Cape Williams and Cape Adare. [Wikipedia]

Over 150 meteorites have been recovered from this blue ice field.
