Thanks to Kevin Altheim for adding this peak.

Located SW of Mount Evan-Thomas and N of Mount Hood at the N end of the Opal Range. With its steep west face, it is one of the more impressive peaks of the Opal Range.

It was named in 1922 after Rear Admiral W.C. Pakenham and the name was spelled wrong by the interprovincial boundary commision. Rear Admiral Pakenham commanded the Second Battle Cruiser Squadron during the Battle of Jutland in World War I.
