Narrative

Mainly ice-free valley on the E coast of Alexander Island, 2 mi long, which is entered immediately S of Ablation Point and opens on George VI Sound. First photographed from the air on Nov. 23, 1935, by Lincoln Ellsworth and mapped from these photos by W.L.G. Joerg. First visited and surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE, and so named by them because of the relatively small amounts of snow and ice found there.
