Names that other countries have for this feature:
A narrow north-south trending mountain range of some 16km, rising to a height of 2700m at Mount Crean in the north-centre, standing near the edge of the polar plateau and forming the west wall of Lashley Glacier which flows south to The Portal of Skelton Glacier, in Victoria Land.
Discovered by the British National Antarctic Expedition (Discovery Expedition, BrNAE), 1901-04, which named these mountains for Leading-Stoker William Lashly, RN, a member of the expedition. Lashly also accompanied the British Antarctic Expedition (Terra Nova expedition, BrAE), 1910-13, under Scott, during which he was a member of the Polar Party to 87º34' S, in 1912. For his part in saving the life of Lieutenant E R G R Evans (later Admiral Lord Mountevans) on the return journey from the polar plateau, Lashly was awarded the Albert Medal.
