Description (see definition): The Masson Range is divided into three parts of which this segment is the central, rising to 1,120 m and extending 4 mi in a N-S direction. The Masson Range was discovered and named by British Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE), 1929-31, under Mawson. This central range was mapped by Norwegian cartographers from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936-37, and named Mekammen (the middle comb or crest). The approved name, suggested by ANCA in 1960, more clearly identifies the feature as a part of Masson Range.
