Narrative

A ridge trending north-south, transverse to the axis of Taylor Valley, Victoria Land, forming a divide 100m above sea level between Lake Fryxell and Explorers Cove, McMurdo Sound. Feature depicted on: NZ AntTopo50-ME10

Named For

A large number of solitary fossil corals have been found here by New Zealand Antarctic Research Program (NZARP) - U.S. Antarctic Research Program (USARP) teams in the course of joint geological studies of the area. The name was suggested by Donald P. Elston, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), a research team member who worked at the ridge in the 1979-80 and 1980-81 seasons.
