Narrative

A broad range, much of it with an almost flat, plateau-like summit, extending south from the Fry Saddle, forming the western boundary of Fry drainage, and ending at the Mackay Glacier. The range is steeply cliffed along almost the whole of its eastern side, but on the west for the most part slopes gently into the Cambridge Glacier, except at the northern end where steep slopes descend to ice of the Mawson drainage. The Northern Survey Party of the NZTAE, 1956-58, worked in this area in October-Decmeber 1957. Named by them after the main convoy into McMurdo Sound in the 1956-57 season, the names of various vessels being used for features at the foot of the range.
