Prominent peak, 750 m, 4 mi NE of Enigma Peak in the N part of Rothschild Island. Presumably first seen from a distance by the Russian expedition of 1821 under Bellingshausen. Photographed from the air by the USAS, 1939-41, and roughly mapped. Mapped in detail from air photos taken by the RARE, 1947-48, by Searle of the FIDS in 1960. Named by the UK-APC for the sloop Mirnyy, one of the ships of the Bellingshausen expedition.
