Description (see definition): A mountain massif at the SE side of Vinson Massif, between Hammer Col and Severinghaus Glacier, rising to 4477 m in Mount Rutford and also including from N to S Bugueño Pinnacle, Rada Peak and Mount Craddock. This massif was originally named Mount Craddock by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) in 1965, but subsequent maps limited the name to the massif’s southernmost peak, a modification that was adopted by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) in 2006 when it approved the name Craddock Massif. The massif is named after Professor J. Campbell Craddock (1930-2006), leader of the 1962-63 University of Minnesota geological expedition to the Sentinel and Heritage Ranges of the Ellsworth Mountains.
