Description (see definition): A peak, 2,650 m, on the E flank of Amundsen Glacier, standing 2 mi NW of Mount Stubberud on the ridge descending from northern Nilsen Plateau, Queen Maud Mountains. This peak appears to have been first mapped from air and ground photos taken by the Byrd Antarctic Expedition (ByrdAE), 1928-30. It was mapped in greater detail by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and U.S. Navy (USN) air photos, 1960-64. Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) for A. Beck, a crew member on the the spirit of Amundsen's 1911 commemoration of "Mount A. Beck," a name applied for an unidentifiable mountain in the general area.
