Names that other countries have for this feature:
A forked ridge leading N and E from the Mount Kempe-Mount Huggins saddle. It is bounded on the N and W by the Radian and Glimpse Glaciers, and on the S by Kempe Glacier. The two forks enclose the Glee Glacier and descend to Roaring Valley. The ridge was so named by the VUWAE, 1960-61, because of the persistently dismal weather conditions encountered while they were mapping in January 1961, and also because of difficulties encountered in establishing a high food camp on this ridge by helicopter, again owing to the weather.
