Clarke Fjord, Baffin Bay - Unnamed Peak

We sailed down this particularly picturesque fjord before setting off across Baffin Bay to Greenland. This is just one of hundreds, thousands of distinctive peaks that I saw in the High Arctic that has no name that I can find. Closer to habitable areas the main flat topped peak would have a name and as would probably the smaller two peaks below it, not to mention the shoulder to the right and that rather elegantly pointed one in the distance.

I was tempted to name everything I saw but then realized that I didn't know how to let anyone else know this (other than at lunch or dinner) and get the name adopted - there's always a flaw in the plan.
