Narrative

Mainly snow-covered mountain, 1,400 m, 1 mi NE of Molar Peak in the Osterrieth Range of Anvers Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. First seen by the BelgAE, 1897-99, under Gerlache. The name High Peak was probably given to the feature by Lt. Cdr. J.M. Chaplin, RN, during a sketch survey in 1927 on the unsuitable. The new name, given by the UK-APC, is descriptive of the summit, which is long and gently sloping like a cambered road surface.
