Narrative

Peak, 2,165 m, standing close N of the mouth of Lever Glacier where the latter enters Beascochea Bay, on the W coast of Graham Land. Discovered by the FrAE, 1908-10, under Charcot and named by him "Sommet Saens Valiente," probably for Capt. J.P. Saenz Valiente of Argentina. Remapped by the BGLE under Rymill during surveys in Beascochea Bay in August 1935 and a journey to Trooz Glacier in January 1936. Name shortened by the UK-APC in 1959.
