Names that other countries have for this feature:
A forked ridge leading north and east from the Kempe-Huggins saddle. It is bounded on the north and west by the Radian and Glimpse Glaciers, and on the south by the Kempe Glacier. The two forks enclose the Glee Glacier and descend to Roaring Valley. The ridge was so named by the VUWAE, 1960-61, because of the persistently dismal weather conditions encountered while they were mapping in January 1961, and also because of the difficulties in establishing a high food camp on this ridge by helicopter, again owing to the weather.
