Formerly known as Mount Stalin, this peak is located on the west side of the Wokkpash Glacier.

History of the name change: The former Mount Stalin in B.C. was named to honour Josef Stalin as a Second World War ally, but in the 1980s Ukrainian Canadians voiced their objection to honouring a man whom they viewed as a war criminal. In 1987, the B.C. government changed it to Mount Peck, after Don Peck, a widely respected trapper, guide and outfitter from the area. (source: Canadian Geographic)
