Håhellerskarvet, meaning "shark cave mountain" in Norwegian, is a 2,910 metres (9,550 ft) high partially ice-covered mountain between Austreskorve Glacier and Lunde Glacier in the Mühlig-Hofmann Mountains of Queen Maud Land, East Antarctica.[1] Other nearby geographic features include Håhelleren Cove, indenting the north side of Håhellerskarvet, Håhelleregga Ridge, an irregular rock ridge just north of Håhellerskarvet, Håhellerbotnen Cirque, a large cirque on the east side of Håhelleregga Ridge, and Jøkulkyrkja, a broad, ice-topped mountain located east of Lunde Glacier. All of these geographic features were plotted from surveys and air photos by the Sixth Norwegian Antarctic Expedition (1956–60).[1]
