Narrative

running NE-SW at c. 345m between Passes Peak and Summit Ridge, and marking the highest point on the sledge route between Hope Bay and Duse Bay, Trinity Peninsula, was surveyed by FIDS from "Hope Bay", 1945-46, and named descriptively (APC, 1955, p.20; Anderson, 1957, p.57; DOS 310 Hope Bay sheet, 1961); resurveyed by FIDS in 1955. An Argentine refuge hut was established at the pass by Argentina Army personnel from "Esperanza", 20 June 1955, and called "Antonio Moro" or "Refugio Antonio Moro" after Antonio Moro, who had served in the Antarctic and was a member of the civilian staff of the Secretary of the Argentine Army (Thomas, 1957a, p.523; Pierrou, 1970, p.169). Paso del Medio [=middle pass] (Times, 28 June 1955, quoting an Argentine source). The refuge hut was destroyed by a gale in 1957, rebuilt on Summit Ridge in October 1958, and again destroyed by a gale in March 1959.
