This peak is #1 on the Height List for Newfoundland and Labrador . This peak is #1 in Prominence List for Newfoundland and Labrador . This peak is #1 on the Height List for Quebec . This peak is #1 in Prominence List for Quebec .Located on the Ungava-Labrador divide south of Nachvak Fiord and north of the Koroc River. Before 1971 it was believed that Cirque Mountain (1568m) was the highest peak east of the Rockies and south of Baffin Island. This was based on a measurement by A.P Coleman, who made the first ascent of Cirque in 1916.
While still known as Mont I'berville, it was climbed in 1973 by an overland expedition by Christopher Goetze and Michael Adler, Americans who had kayaked north along the Labrador coast and then trekked overland. They climbed from the east via the exposed, craggy Minaret Ridge. At the same time, Steve Loutrel and others in this team attempted the Koroc Ridge but turned back when it became technical. Goetze and Adler's ascent is notable for its snowy route conditions, impulsive nature, and relative lack of publicity. Goetze's write-up of the climb in the June 1974 Appalachia magazine does not even mention the peak's name or its importance.
Name Notes: It was originally known as just "L1". In August 1971 it was christened "Mont d'Iberville" in honor of Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville. This name angered residents of Newfoundland because he had lead many ruthless expeditions against them, including one in 1696 against the Avalon Peninsula.
1981: The Newfoundland Geographic Names Board officially names L1 "Mount Caubvick", after one of the Inuit who was taken to England in 1772 by George Cartwright. As with the naming of Torngarsoak, the name was chosen to honor the first inhabitants of Labrador.
