Names that other countries have for this feature:
Sharp, dark, double-pointed peak, 240 m, near the NW end of Greenwich Island, in the South Shetland Islands. This peak, presumably known to early sealers in the area, was charted by DI personnel on the Discovery II in 1935 and given the descriptive name Black Peak. In order to avoid duplication the name was changed by the UK-APC in 1961. Greaves Peak is named for Captain Greaves, Master of the British sealing vessel 1821-22.
