Narrative

A coastal range about 30 miles long with steep sharp peaks lying west of Moore Bay along the west side of the Ross Ice Shelf. Mts Harmsworth, Speyer and Dawson-Lambton are peaks in this range. Mt Harmsworth, 2939m high, is the highest point. Probably named after the training ship in the Thames, in which many officers of early Antarctic expeditions trained. Discovered by the NAE, 1901-04. The name seems to have been first applied on the charts of the BAE, 1907-09.
