The peak was mapped by United States Geological Survey (USGS) from U.S. Navy aerial photographs, 1966–69, and was visited by a joint USGS-BAS geological party, 1986-87. Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) in 1988 after David L. Schneider, cartographer, USGS, a member of the USGS satellite surveying team at Australia's Casey Station, winter party 1974. While assigned to the Law Dome ice-drilling team during March 1974, Schneider assisted in the rescue of three Australian co-workers whose Nodwell snow traverse vehicle had fallen into a deep crevasse.
