It is bounded on the east by the western ridges of the Royal Society Range; on the south by the outlet of the Skelton Glacier, the Worcester Range, Escalade Peak, and the north end of the Boomerang Range, on the west by low nunataks and a continuous low ridge mostly inundated by ice moving east into the névé, and on the north by Mount Feather, the source of the Ferrar Glacier, and Pivot Peak.
