Description (see definition): Mountains rising to 1,370 m, extending in a WNW-ESE direction for 5 mi and lying close S of Neny Fjord on the W coast of Graham Land. They are bounded to the E by Remus Glacier, to the S by Romulus Glacier, and are separated from Red Rock Ridge to the W by Safety Col. First roughly surveyed in 1936 by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) under Rymill. Resurveyed in 1948-49 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS), and so named by them because the black cliffs of the mountains facing Rymill Bay remain snow free throughout the year.
