Clinker Peak is a stratovolcano, in the Garibaldi Volcanic Belt, British Columbia, Canada. It is located on the west shoulder of Mount Price on the west side of Garibaldi Lake. It's considered a volcanic vent of Mount Price, and has produced two large lava flows approximately 9,000 years ago, that ponded against the retreating continental ice sheet and formed The Barrier, containing Garibaldi Lake.
