This mountain has a shape characteristic of a roche moutonnee: sloping gradually up from the north, with a steep, boulder strewn southern slope. Glaciers moving over mountains commonly produce this form, by plucking rocks off the "downstream" end as they pass over. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roche_moutonnée Will open in a new tab or window
There is some question whether this is a true roche moutonnee, or a product of the basalt flows.
