Mount Kliment Ohridski (Vrah Kliment Ohridski \'vr&h 'kli-ment 'o-hrid-ski\) is the highest ridge (1500m) in the Sofia University Mountains on Alexander Island, Antarctica. The feature extends 7 km in the northwest-southeast direction with partly ice-free southern slopes. Shaw Nunatak is located in Nichols Snowfield 4 km off the southeast extremity of Mount Kliment Ohridski.
