A rock peak (2,200 m) surmounting the E extremity of the Bermel Escarpment, 1.5 mi WNW of Mount Powell, in the E part of the Thiel Mountains. The name was proposed by Peter Bermel and Arthur Ford, co-leaders of the USGS Thiel Mountains party which surveyed these mountains in 1960-61. Named for Clarence King, the first director of the U.S. Geological Survey, 1879-81. Other peaks in the vicinity are named for subsequent directors of the USGS.
