A series of sharp, rock peaks on a ridge separating the Seller and Fleming Glaciers in central Antarctic Peninsula. Photographed from the air by BGLE in 1937, and by RARE in 1947. Surveyed by FIDS in 1958 and 1960. The name, applied by UK-APC, is descriptive of the sharp peaks which suggest the bristles of a brush.
