Mount Bray in relation to the Jenkins Heights

Mount Bray (74°50′S 114°4′W) is a rounded mountain that is ice-capped but has a steep, bare rock southeast face, situated east of Jenkins Heights and 1.5 nautical miles (3 km) northwest of Klimov Bluff on the Walgreen Coast of Westarctica.

Mapping and name

The mountain was mapped by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and from U.S. Navy air photos collected during the 1959–66 research seasons. Mount Bray was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names in honor of Thomas K. Bray, a USGS topographic engineer with the Marie Byrd Land Survey party in 1966–67.
