Narrative

rising to 1350m in Osterrieth Range, Anvers Island, was probably sighted by BeAE; roughly charted by DI in 1927 and named High Peak probably at that time (BA chart 3205, 1.iii.1929; APC, 1955, p.12). Pico Alto [translation of English name] (Chile. DNH chart LI, 1947). Pico High (Argentina. MM chart 106, 1949; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.152). Pico Elevado [translation of English name] (Argentina. MM chart 129, 1957; Pierrou, 1970, p.338). Following resurvey by FIDS from "Arthur Harbour" in 1955, the feature was renamed Mount Camber in reference to the gently sloping nature of the summit (APC, 1958, p.12; BA chart 3566, 16.x.1959).
