Description (see definition): Mountains forming the NW extremity of Alexander Island, extending 20 mi in an E-W direction between Cape Vostok and Russian Gap. First seen in 1821 by a Russian expedition under Bellingshausen and resighted by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition (BelgAE), 1897-99. They were roughly charted by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE), 1908-10, under Charcot, who named them for Le Havre, French port from which the Pourquol Pas? sailed in 1908. The mountains were mapped in detail from air photos taken by the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE), 1947-48, by Searle of the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1960.
