The group lies S of Emlen Peaks of the Usarp Mountains and W of Monument Nunataks and upper Rennick Glacier, adjacent to the featureless interior plateau. Discovered by the U.S. Victoria Land Traverse party, 1959-60, and mapped by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1959-64. So named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) for their remote position at the posterior side of the large mountain belt that extends from the Ross Sea to the interior ice plateau.
