Names that other countries have for this feature:
A flat-topped ridge 1.6km long and 0.5km wide between Shaw Trough and Healy Trough in the Labyrinth of Wright Valley, McMurdo Dry Valleys. The ledge rises to 920m and is split nearly in half by a hanging valley. Feature shown on: NZ AntTopo50-ME07
The name is descriptive and was recommended by United States Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) (2004) because a central N-S hanging valley nearly divides the ledge in two.
