Mount Rouge ( French Massif Rouge 'Red Massif' , in the United Kingdom Mount Mellanby ) is a high and striking mountain on the Graham Coast of Graham Land in the north of the Antarctic Peninsula . It rises between the Funk and Cadman glaciers at the head of Beascochea Bay .
Jean-Baptiste Charcot , leader of the Fifth French Antarctic Expedition (1908-1910), gave it its descriptive name. The Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names translated this into English in 1965 in an adapted form. The UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee named him against it in 1959 by the British biochemist Edward Mellanby (1884-1955), whose work on rickets to the discovery of vitamin D contributed.
