Description (see definition): A group of ice-covered mountains, 35 mi long, rising to 3,655 m in Mount Frakes and including Mount Rees, Mount Steere and Boyd Ridge. The mountains are located 50 mi SW of Toney Mountain in Marie Byrd Land and were probably among those viewed by Admiral Byrd and other members of the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS) in plane flights from the ship Bear on Feb. 24 and 25, 1940. They were mapped in the course of the 1957-58 oversnow traverse from Byrd Station to the Sentinel Range led by C.R. Bentley, and named after Albert P. Crary (Crary Ice Rise, q.v.), who was then Deputy Chief Scientist for the US-IGY Antarctic Program.
