Narrative

A small group of mountains consisting of a main massif and several rocky outliers, forming the NE portion of the Wohlthat Mountains in Queen Maud Land. Discovered and plotted from air photos by the GerAE, 1938-39, under Ritscher. The mountains were remapped by NorAE, 1956-60, who named them for Otto von Gruber, the German cartographer who compiled maps of this area from air photos taken by GerAE, 1938-39. This feature is not to be confused with "Gruber-Berge," an unidentified toponym applied by GerAE in northern Muhlig-Hofmann Mountains.
