Modev Peak

Modev Peak (Bulgarian: Модев връх, ‘Modev Vrah’ \'mo-dev 'vr&h) is the mostly ice-covered peak rising to 670 m on Two Hummock Island in the Palmer Archipelago, Antarctica. The feature has precipitous and partly ice-free northwest slopes, and overlooks Kotev Cove to the north. It is one of the two ‘hummocks’ that gave the name of the island.
