Description (see definition): A ridge to the E of Blue Glacier on Scott Coast, Victoria Land, running E-W and rising to c. 1,175 m between Garwood Valley and Marshall Valley. The feature was almost surely observed in 1903 by the Koettlitz Glacier party led by Lieutenant A.B. Armitage of British National Antarctic Expedition (BrNAE), but it was first clearly mapped by Captain Robert F. Scott's second expedition, British Antarctic Expedition (BrAE), 1910-13. The ridge was named in association with Marshall Valley by the New Zealand Antarctic Place-Names Committee (NZ-APC) in 1982.
