Narrative

A prominent ridge, 5 mi long, between Hooker Glacier and Salient Glacier on the E side of Royal Society Range, Victoria Land. Named by the NZ-APC from a proposal by R.H. Findlay, whose NZARP geological party worked in the area of the ridge in 1979-80. The name is appropriate as the ridge has vertebrae-like knobs and because a party member suffered serious frostbite injury here and had to be replaced.
