Names that other countries have for this feature:
Three peaks, the highest 1,460 m, extending in a NW-SE direction for 4 mi, standing 15 mi W of Cape Rymill on the E side of Palmer Land. This feature was photographed from the air in 1928 by Sir Hubert Wilkins, and again in 1940 by members of the USAS who also sledge surveyed along this coast. The peaks were resighted by the RARE, 1947-48, under Ronne, who named them for Bud Engel, president of the Albert Richard Division of the Osterman Co., Milwaukee, who contributed garments suitable for winter use to the expedition.
