Mount Liavaag — Coordinates: 77°22'S 86°29'W

Mount Liavaag is a 1820-metre-high mountain in Antarctica (77°22'S 86°29'W). The mountain lies between Mount Holmboe and Holth Peaks near the north end of the Sentinel Range in Ellsworth Mountains. Mount Liavaag was discovered by Lincoln Ellsworth on his Trans-Antarctic Flight Expedition 23 November 1935. The name of Mount Liavaag was provided by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) for First Mate Lauritz Ludvig Martin Liavaag at M/S Wyatt Earp in 1936. He was also a member of two previous expeditions to the Antarctic with Lincoln Ellsworth.

Below there are two pictures of Lauritz Ludvig Martin Liavaag. Next picture shows the members of the Ellsworth Expedition ca. 1933. At the bottom there is a map of Northern Sentinel Range in Ellsworth Mountains, Antarctica. Click the map to enlarge it.
