Narrative

rising to 545m NE of Port Lockroy, Wiencke Island, Palmer Archipelago, was probably sighted by BeAE in February 1898; roughly mapped by FAE, 1903-05, in 1905 and named Pic Jabet after Jacques Jabet, boatswain in the expedition ship Fran├žais, who climbed in the area (Charcot, 1906b, p.285; Gourdon, 1908, end map). Jabet Peak (BA, 1916, photograph facing p.405; APC, 1955, p.12; BA chart 3572, 25.vii.1958). The Ridge (Jabet Peak) (USHO, 1943, p.131). The peak was surveyed by FIDS from "Port Lockroy" in 1944 and 1948. Monte Angamos, so called by CAE after the Chilean transport ship Angamos (Chile. IGM, 1948a, photograph following p.133).
