Boss Peak is an isolated black peak, 2,170 metres (7,120 ft) high, at the east side of the terminus of Jutland Glacier, 8 nautical miles (15 km) north-northeast of Thomson Peak, in the northwestern part of the Victory Mountains of Victoria Land. It was named by the northern party of the New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition, 1963–64, partly for its resemblance to a shield boss, its aspect, and also as a reminiscence of Sir Ernest Shackleton's nickname, the "Boss".
