Narrative

A broad range, much of it with an almost flat, plateau-like summit, extending S from the Fry Saddle and ending at Mackay Glacier. The range is steeply cliffed on its E side, but on the W it slopes gently into the Cambridge Glacier. The N.Z. Northern Survey Party of the CTAE (1956-58) worked in this area in 1957. Named by them after the main convoy into McMurdo Sound in the 1956-57 season, the names of the various vessels being used for features in the range.
