Names that other countries have for this feature:
A pond or small lake over 200 m in breadth, in a moraine enclosed cirque basin at the foot of the cliffs to the S end of Alatna Valley, in the Convoy Range of Victoria Land. This frozen pond was the site of a 1960-61 USARP field party (Parker Calkin, Roger Hart, and Ellory Schempp) which had to be evacuated in a hurry. Equipment and provisions stockpiled on the pond ice were eventually redistributed by the wind and lodged among the surrounding morainic boulders. A 1989-90 NZARP party (Trevor Chinn) camped nearby made frequent visits to the site to clean up the area, but also to acquire various 30-year old exotic foods to supplement their standard camp fare.
