The Fist is a huge knob of Rock that protrudes from the ridge that extends northeast from Mount Smuts, and from the Spray Lakes Road has the exact profile of a left hand clinched into a Fist. It is quite steep on all sides and there is a difficult scramble on the south/southwest slopes which is quite steep in places. Access is from the Smuts Pass Trail which starts on the Mount Shark/Engadine Lodge access road.
It was named in 1973 by Bernie Schiesser due to its obvious profile of a hand clenched into a fist.
