Names that other countries have for this feature:
Series of rock peaks extending 11 mi in a N-S direction, rising from the snowfields 20 mi S of the Walton Mountains in the S part of Alexander Island. First seen from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth on Nov. 23, 1935, and mapped from photos taken on that flight by W.L.G. Joerg. Remapped from air photos taken by the RARE, 1947-48, by Searle of the FIDS in 1960. The name, given by the UK-APC, refers to the precipitous and abrupt way in which the peaks rise from the surrounding snowfields and is associated with other musical names in the vicinity.
