Description (see definition): A range about 30 mi long and 10 mi wide, extending WSW-ENE from Eldridge Peak to Mirsky Ledge. The range forms the NE end of the Horlick Mountains and consists primarily of a large snow-topped plateau with steep northern cliffs and several flat-topped ridges and mountains. The highest point, 2,990 m, is the summit of Mount Schopf. The range was surveyed in 1958-59 by the U.S. Antarctic Research Program (USARP) Horlick Mountains Traverse, and was investigated in 1960-61 and 1961-62 by geologists of the Institute of Polar Studies of Ohio State University, for which the range is named.
