Names that other countries have for this feature:
A group of exposed mountains, c. 20 mi long, typical of ice-free features of the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Victoria Land, located S of Taylor Glacier and bounded by Finger Mountain, Mount Handsley, Mount Feather and Tabular Mountain; also including Knobhead, Terra Cotta Mountain, New Mountain, Beacon Heights, Pyramid Mountain, Arena Valley, Kennar Valley, Turnabout Valley and the several valleys and ridges within Beacon Valley. The mountains were visited by British expeditions led by R.F. Scott (1901-04 and 1910-13) and E.H. Shackleton (1907-09), which applied several names. Names were added in the years subsequent to IGY, 1957-58, concurrent with research carried out by NZARP and USARP field parties, and to fulfill the requirement for maps compiled from USN aerial photographs, 1947-83. Named by the NZ-APC in 1977 after Lester Bowden Quartermain (1895-1973), New Zealand Antarctic historian.
