Narrative

A high rock ridge between Sanford Valley and Thomas Valley in the E part of Olympus Range, Victoria Land. Named by US-ACAN (1997) after Elias E. McClelland, topographic engineer, leader of the 1971-72 USGS field party that established a network of horizontal and vertical control over a 6,000 square kilometer area of McMurdo Dry Valleys to support compilation of eight topographic maps at 1:50,000 scale. These maps, bounded by 160° and 164°E and 77°15' and 77°45'S, were published by USGS in 1977.
