El nombre actual corresponde al apellido del comandante de escuadrilla Eleuterio Ramírez Betancour, Fuerza Aérea de Chile, quien participó en la Expedición Antártica Chilena de 1956 a bordo de la PF. "Baquedano" de la Armada de Chile. Monte sobremontado por dos picos, el más oriental de los cuales tiene aproximada mente 1.000 metros de elevación, que se ubica a unas 3 millas al E de la loma Sirius sobre la divisoria que separa los glaciares East Russell y West Russell, en la parte central de la península Luis Felipe.
