Description (see definition): 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 French Antarctic Expedition (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 Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1960 for the Admiralen, the first modern floating factory ship, which first operated in Admiralty Bay in January 1906.
