Prickly Ridge

Prickly Ridge

Prickly Ridge is a rounded ice-covered ridge 4 nautical miles (7 km) west of Shelton Head on the south side of Thurston Island. Belknap Nunatak is the largest outcrop on the ridge. The descriptive name was given by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN); small dispersed nunataks rise above the ice surface giving the feature a prickly appearance.
