Names that other countries have for this feature:
A line of sedimentary cliffs on the E coast of Alexander Island which faces E onto George VI Sound and extends 3 mi N from the mouth of Mercury Glacier. Probably first seen by Lincoln Ellsworth, who flew directly over it and photographed segments of this coast on Nov. 23, 1935. First roughly surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE. Resurveyed in 1949 by the FIDS, at which time the rock strata were independently examined by members of the party at two different points, an important investigation causing the delay which gave rise to the name.
