This is the first peak located north of Mount Farquhar. It lies right along the divide. On the 1:50K map it is not labelled but has a spot height of 8980 feet.

Name Notes: Before 2010.10.29 the location of Scrimger, Holcroft and McQuarrie were mixed up in Bivouac, and perhaps on 1:50K and TRIM. However it now seems that both TRIM and the latest 1:50K map are in agreement. See True Location of Scrimger and Holcroft.
