Names that other countries have for this feature:
A cluster of peaks rising to 1,110 m between Wilson Pass and Rock Pile Point on Bermel Peninsula (q.v.), Bowman Coast, Graham Land. The peaks were photographed from the air by Sir Hubert Wilkins, 1928, and Lincoln Ellsworth, 1935, and were roughly mapped from the photographs by W.L.G. Joerg, 1937; further photographed from the air by USAS, 1940; surveyed by FIDS, 1947. The name Rock Pile Peaks was suggested by UK-APC in 1952. It derives from Rock Pile Point, a name applied descriptively to Bermel Peninsula by USAS, 1939-41, but subsequently reapplied by US-ACAN to the E point of the peninsula.
