Narrative

The eastern of two broad, mainly ice-free ridges that descend N from Mount Morning, Scott Coast, Victoria Land. Gandalf Ridge and Lake Discovery are located at the N end of this ridge. The name was suggested by geologist Anne C. Wright, Department of Geoscience, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, a member of the NMIMT field party that camped on the ridge in the 1985-86 season. The party's tent was blown to shreds by 100-knot winds, requiring evacuation of the party by helicopter. This ridge is renowned for consistently strong winds. Riviera Ridge, which is similar in appearance to this ridge, lies 4 mi to the west.
