Narrative

A group of four nunataks which rise to 910 m on the S side of Byrd Glacier. The outcrops lie between Mount Tadpole and Mount Madison in the Churchill Mountains. The feature was geologically mapped as Dick Formation, a clastic, sandstone unit, by NZGS, 1960-61. The name arose following remapping by USAP geologist Edmund Stump, 2000-01, and the determination that the entire outcrop is Shackleton Limestone.
