Roughly surveyed from the ground in 1936 by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) and in 1940-41 by the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS), who used the names "Two Step Mountains" and "Table Mountain" for this feature. The name Two Step Cliffs derives from the name used by U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS), and was suggested by Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) following surveys in 1949 as being particularly descriptive of this feature.
