Given this geologically descriptive name by the NZ-APC, it arose from investigations by the N.Z. Geological Survey and the Victoria University Expedition in 1964-65. The top of the ridge has been planed off by subsequent glaciation and the resultant surface exposes two basalt "pipes" (Nubian Formation) within the trachyte. These have altered the trachyte at their margins to various shades of brown, hence the name of the ridge.
