Tent Peak is a tent-shaped peak rising to about 1,570 metres (5,150 ft) midway between Mount Terror and Cape Crozier in eastern Ross Island. Descriptively named by a party of the New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition (NZGSAE), 1958–59, which occupied the peak as an astronomical control station, January 5, 1959, and erected a tent below the peak.
