Mt. Chamberlin
The highest peak in the Arctic Refuge at 9,020 ft (2,749 m), the mountain bears a glacier and a glacier-fed creek, both named Chamberlin. The mountain rises on the east side of the south end of Lake Peters. Thomas Chrowder Chamberlin (1843-1928) was the geologist on the Peary Auxiliary Expedition of 1894. The mountain was named in 1919 by Ernest D.K. Leffingwell, another geologist who, according to the Alaska Division of Parks, "almost singlehandedly mapped Alaska's Arctic coast during the years 1907-1914."

Kelly Ridge is north of Mt. Chamberlin and overlooks Lake Schrader.
