Description (see definition): Peak, 980 m, standing 0.5 mi S of Gourdon Peak and marking the highest point on Booth Island in the Wilhelm Archipelago. In 1898, the Belgian Antarctic Expedition (BelgAE) under Gerlache charted this area and applied the name "Ile Wandel" to this island which Dallmann had named Booth in 1873-74. Although Booth later became established as the name of the island, Gerlache's naming has been preserved in the name for its highest peak. Carl F. Wandel (1843-1930) was a Danish hydrographer who assisted in preparations for the Belgian expedition.
