Narrative

rising to c. 200m in the NNE-SSW pass between Neny Fjord and Rymill Bay, Fallières Coast, was surveyed in 1936 and traversed, 5 January 1937, by BGLE (Rymill, 1938a, map facing p.432; Rymill and others, 1938, p.241-42); resurveyed by FIDS from "Stonington Island", 1948-49; called Rymill's Col after J.R. Rymill (Rymill Bay, q.v.) (Butson, 1949, p.199) or Bingham Col after Surg. Capt. E.W. Bingham, RN (Bingham Glacier, q.v.) (Nichols, 1955, Fig. 2); named Safety Col as the feature affords a safe sledging route between Neny Fjord and Rymill Bay when there is open water off Red Rock Ridge to the W (APC, 1955, p.18; DCS 601 sheet 68 66, 1955).
