Names that other countries have for this feature:
A group of mountains that dominate the area, the highest peak rising to 3,015 m, located 25 mi N of Mount Jackson on the E margin of the Dyer Plateau of Palmer Land. These mountains were probably seen from the air by Ellsworth in 1935 and their N extremities were sketched in 1936 by a BGLE sledge party under Rymill. In 1940 they were photographed from the air and charted from the ground by the USAS, and in the expedition reports and charts were assumed to be Ellsworth's Eternity Range (q.v.). The mountains were mapped in detail by USGS in 1974. Named by US-ACAN for R. Admiral David F. Welch, Commander, U.S. Naval Support Force, Antarctica, 1969-71.
