Nope.

I don't think the peak has a name but it is at the junction of the ridges leading to Echo peaks and Matthes crest.

Before GB rejected Rogues response I would have said the e. end of Echo peaks cluster.
Here is my pic from 2012 with a little local color and the Cockscomb also included.

Actually peak is in fact Matthes Crest itself. The peak on the right of my photo (center of yours) is the southern end of the main and highest part of Matthes Crest. The peak on the left is actually the southern end of the Matthes Crest proper although it looks disconnected from it because the ridge swings westward between the two.
