Sorlle Buttress (54°17′S 36°50′W) is a mountain rising above 1,370 m, between Mount Spaaman and Three Brothers in the Allardyce Range of South Georgia. It was surveyed by the South Georgia Survey in the period 1951-57 and named by the United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) for Petter Sorlle (1884–1922), Norwegian whaling captain and inventor who, in 1922, took out a patent for his whale slipway.
