Description (see definition): Conspicuous reddish-colored promontory which rises to 690 m and projects from the W coast of Graham Land between Neny Fjord and Rymill Bay. Surveyed in 1936 by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) under Rymill, who so named it because of its color. Further surveys in 1948 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) have identified this ridge as the feature first sighted in 1909 and named "Ile Pavie" or "Cap Pavie" by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) under Charcot, but the name Red Rock Ridge is now too firmly established to alter. The name Pavie Ridge has been assigned to the prominent rocky ridge at 6834S, 6659W.
