Narrative

A small ice tongue, 1 mile long. east of Couloir Cliffs, in Granite Harbour. Named by the Granite Harbour Geological Party, led by Taylor, of the BAE, 1910-13. The NZ gazetteer published this name as Harbour Ice Tongue in 1958, and it has subsequently been shown as such on published maps. However, the descriptive generic used by Scott's second expedition on its large scale maps was 'glacier tongue'. Therefore the feature type was changed by the NZGB on 15 May 2006.
