Narrative

A series of dark, abrupt cliffs interspersed by short glaciers and surmounted by sharp peaks rising to about 2050 m high, forming the northern shoulder of the Royal Society Range, in Victoria Land. The cliffs form a right angle which extends west and then south for approximately 10 miles along the south side of the Ferrar Glacier. The feature was discovered and named on 7 December 1902 by Armitage, leader of a small party of NAE, 1901-04, which explore this area. The name describes the feature.
