Fadden Peak (85°29′S 142°43′W) is a peak, 920 meters (3,020 ft) high, located 2 nautical miles (4 km) east of Cressey Peak, between the southeast edge of the Ross Ice Shelf and the Watson Escarpment. 1.5 miles (2.4 km) east sits a small mountain called Ivory Tower.


It was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Dean E. Fadden, a utilitiesman with the Byrd Station winter party in 1958.
