The main peak has an elevation of 4,350 metres (14,272 ft) and the lower sub-peak is 4,280 metres (14,042 ft) high. Discovered by the British National Antarctic Expedition (1901–04), it is named for Sir Clements Markham, who, as President of the Royal Geographical Society, planned the expedition and chose Robert Falcon Scott as its leader. It is the fourth highest mountain in Antarctica.
