Description (see definition): Rocky ridge of sandstones and shales forming the W side of Mars Glacier in the SE corner of Alexander Island. The coast in this vicinity was first seen from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth on Nov. 23, 1935, and roughly mapped from photos obtained on that flight by W.L.G. Joerg. This ridge was first surveyed in 1949 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) and named by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) for its association with Mars Glacier, Phobos being the inner of the two satellites of Mars.
