Three low elevations aligned nearly N-S The dominant central nunatak and the southern elevation have definite rock exposures; the minor northern elevation may be entirely snow covered. The feature was discovered by the RARE (1947-48), led by Finn Ronne, who named it "Mount Haag" for Joseph Haag, head of Todd Shipyards, New York, which worked on the expedition ship, Aerial photographs obtained by U.S. Navy Squadron VX-6 in 1966 show the feature to be a group of nunataks, not a mountain, and the name is amended accordingly by US-ACAN (https://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/gaz/scar/display_name.cfm?gaz_id=126048).
