Description (see definition): A group of peaks and ridges lying northward of Steinskaret Gap and forming the northern portion of the Kurze Mountains, in Queen Maud Land. The name "Holtedahlfjella" was applied to the entire extent of the Kurze Mountains on a Norsk Polarinstitutt map of 1966, but the name Kurze has priority, having been given by the German Antarctic Expedition (GerAE) under Ritscher, 1938-39. For the sake of historical continuity, Kurze Mountains has been retained as applied by Ritscher; the name Holtedahl Peaks is recommended for the elevations northward of Steinskaret Gap in these mountains. Named for Prof. Olaf Holtedahl, noted Norwegian geologist who worked in the South Shetland Islands and Palmer Archipelago area, 1927-28.
