The deep valley formerly occupied by the head of the Towle Glacier, but now ice-free. It lies six miles north of the Greenville Valley. Discovered by the Northern Survey Party of the NZTAE, 1956-58, in December 1957, and named by them for USNS Private John R Towle, an American freighter which carried a large proportion of the NZTAE stores south in December 1956.
