Names that other countries have for this feature:
Group of almost ice-free mountains, rising to c. 1,550 m, and including McHugo Peak, Mount Noel, Mount Allan and Mount Eissinger, between Eureka Glacier and Riley Glacier, E of Warren Ice Piedmont, in western Palmer Land. These mountains were first photographed from the air on Nov. 23, 1935, by Lincoln Ellsworth and were mapped from these photographs by W.L.G. Joerg. First surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE under Rymill and resurveyed in 1948 by the FIDS. The name was first used by BGLE sledging parties because the mountains are an important landmark in the overland traverse from the Wordie Ice Shelf, down Eureka Glacier, to George VI Sound.
