The eastern of two broad, mainly ice-free ridges that descend north from Mount Morning, Scott Coast, Victoria Land. Riviera Ridge is the other, to the west, and Gandalf Ridge and Lake Discovery are located at the north end of this ridge.
The name was suggested by geologist Anne C. Wright, Department of Geoscience, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, a member of the NMUMT field party that camped on the ridge in the 1985-86 season. The party's tent was blown to shreds by 100-knot winds, requiring evacuation of the party by helicopter. This ridge is renowned for consistently strong winds. Juxtaposed with Riviera Ridge, which is similar in appearance to this ridge to the west.
