Description (see definition): A ridge consisting of numerous ice-covered hills, the highest being Crown Peak (1,185 m) at the S end of the ridge. Located 2 mi inland from Marescot Point along the NW coast of Trinity Peninsula. This ridge was probably observed by Captain Jules Dumont d'Urville on Feb. 27, 1838, when he named nearby "Cap Marescot" (now Marescot Point). Following its 1946 survey, the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) gave the name Marescot Ridge to this ridge, thinking it to be the coastal feature named by d'Urville. The name Marescot has been retained for both the ridge and the nearby point.
