Names that other countries have for this feature:
Prominent ice-free ridge situated 3 mi NW of Spike Cape, near the center of Wilson Piedmont Glacier in Victoria Land. The feature was "Black Ridge" on maps of the BrAE under Scott, 1910-13, but that name is already in use in Victoria Land. In order to avoid identical names it was renamed in 1964 by the US-ACAN for Kirby J. Hanson, meteorologist at the South Pole Station, 1958.
