Description (see definition): Two conspicuous rock peaks, the highest 960 m, standing at the W side of Konig Glacier, 2.5 mi SW of Fortuna Bay, South Georgia. The name Cornwall Peak was probably given by DI personnel during their survey of Fortuna Bay in 1929. During the South Georgia Survey (SGS), 1951-52, this peak could not be re-identified. At the same time it was reported that the features now described, although lying farther south, together form a conspicuous landmark requiring a name. The name Cornwall Peaks was recommended for these peaks by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1954; the name Cornwall Peak has been eliminated.
