Mount Liavaag


Mount Liavaag is located 77°22′S 86°29′W, between Mount Holmboe and the Holth Peaks near the northern end of the Sentinel Range in the Ellsworth Mountains of Antarctica. The mountain is 1820 metres high, and is administered under the Antarctic Treaty System. Mount Liavaag was discovered by Lincoln Ellsworth on his trans-Antarctic flight of November 23, 1935. Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names gave the name for First Mate Lauritz Ludvig Martin Liavaag of the M/S Wyatt Earp i 1936. Liavaag (my great grandfather) was also a member of two earlier Antarctic expeditions with Lincoln Ellsworth.
