Narrative

A large group of mainly snow-covered peaks and ridges along the N coast of Victoria Land. The group is bounded on the N and E by the Pacific Ocean, on the W by Lillie Glacier, and on the S by Ebbe Glacier and Dennistoun Glacier. Mountains in this area were first sighted by Capt. James Clark Ross in 1841. They were photographed during USN Operation Highjump, 1946-47, and were surveyed by USGS helicopter teams, 1962-63. Named by the northern party of the NZGSAE, 1963-64, for the Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition (ANARE), 1962, under Phillip Law, which performed survey work along the coast.
