Description (see definition): A prominent peak (785 m) rising 6 mi NW of Eld Peak on the W side of Matusevich Glacier. Two conical peaks were sighted in the area from the Peacock on Jan. 16, 1840 by Passed Midshipmen William Reynolds and Henry Eld of the U.S. Exploring Expedition (USEE) (1838-42). The northwestern peak was named for Reynolds by U.S. Exploring Expedition (USEE) leader Lieutenant Charles Wilkes. In 1959 Phillip Law of Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) made investigations of features in this area. Reference to Wilkes' narrative showed that the recorded descriptions of the peaks seen by Reynolds and Eld to be in accord with photographs of the peaks on the W side of Matusevich Glacier. The peak described was selected by Law to commemorate Wilkes' naming.
