Helios Ridge is a wide and 7 km long mountain ridge in the East Antarctic Victoria Land . In the Olympus Range of the Transantarctic Mountains , it extends from Mount Helios in an east-northeast direction in the vicinity of Lake Brownworth and rises between the eastern flank of the mouth of the Clark Glacier and the Wright Valley .
