Names that other countries have for this feature:
Black, rocky ridge 1.5 mi long in a N-S direction, terminating at its S end in a small peak. The ridge forms the S end of Detroit Plateau and marks a change in the direction of the plateau escarpment along the E coast of Graham Land where it turns W to form the N wall of Drygalski Glacier. Dr. Otto Nordenskjold, leader of the SwedAE, 1901-04, gave the name Cape Ruth, in honor of his sister, to what appeared to be a cape at the N side of Drygalski Glacier. The feature was determined to be a ridge in 1947 by the FIDS.
