First seen from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth on Nov. 23, 1935, and mapped from photos taken on that flight by W.L.G. Joerg.

The name, given by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC), refers to the precipitous and abrupt way in which the peaks rise from the surrounding snowfields and is associated with other musical names in the vicinity.
