Description (see definition): Three peaks, the highest 1,460 m, extending in a NW-SE direction for 4 mi, standing 15 mi W of Cape Rymill on the E side of Palmer Land. This feature was photographed from the air in 1928 by Sir Hubert Wilkins, and again in 1940 by members of the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS) who also sledge surveyed along this coast. The peaks were resighted by the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE), 1947-48, under Ronne, who named them for Bud Engel, president of the Albert Richard Division of the Osterman Co., Milwaukee, who contributed garments suitable for winter use to the expedition.
