Narrative

Embranchement de pistes balisées, zone de dépôt, d'approvisonnement et de matériel, situé sur le plateau glaciaire continental antarctique, au sud-ouest de la base Dumont-D'Urville, à 33 km environ de la côte de la terre Adélie. Point situé au-delà de la zone glaciaire marginale particulièrement crevassée, à partir duquel les raids vers l'intérieur du continent peuvent prendre leur véritable direction. Toponyme non retenu sur une carte marine classique, mais pouvant présenter un intérêt scientifique ou patrimonial.
