Mount Townsend had an elevation of 2,209 m (7,247 ft) and a prominence of 189 m (620 ft). Although lower than Mount Kosciuszko, Mount Townsend has a more craggy peak and is arguably more dominant than the relatively round-topped Mt. Kosciuszko. Due to ease of climbing Mt. Kosciuszko, and the much lower accessibility of Mount Townsend, a tradition has emerged of each person who climbs Mount Townsend carrying a rock from the bottom in the pack, and leaving it at the top, with the goal of making Mount Townsend the taller of the two relatively similar in height peaks.
