This is one of two peaks in Alaska named South Buttress; the other - much higher - is in the Denali region. In this case, this name appears on the 1:63k maps, but not on the 1:250k; and on the 1:250k, a different and lower peak to the south of Golgotha has the name South Buttress (this one may be intended to be "West Buttress"...??)
