Description (see definition): A group of rocky hills composed of banded gneisses and including Kemp Peak and Lealand Bluff, extending along the SW side of William Scoresby Bay. This area was explored by DI personnel on the William Scoresby in Feb. 1936, and by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936-37, the latter group taking air photos used to map these hills for the first time. Geologic investigation of the area was made by Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) in 1961. Named by ANCA for Dr. F.L. Stillwell, geologist with Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE), 1911-14, who derived a theory of metamorphic differentiation from banded gneisses of the same type on George V Coast.
