Admiralen Peak (USA) 62° 06' 00.0" S 58° 30' 00.0" W Peak
Name ID: 121600 Place ID: 84

Peak, 305 m, lying 0.7 mi SSW of Crepin Point at the W side of Admiralty Bay on King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands. In 1908-10 the FrAE under Charcot applied the name "Le Poing" to a feature in this area. It is not clear, however, which of four summits the name refers to and the name has been rejected. This peak was named by the UK-APC in 1960 for the Admiralen, the first modern floating factory ship, which first operated in Admiralty Bay in January 1906.
