Narrative

A col at 305 m, between Copper Peak and Billie Peak in the Osterrieth Range of Anvers Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. Probably first seen by the BelgAE, 1897-99, under Gerlache. The name "Copper Glacier" appears in this position on a chart based on a 1927 survey by DI personnel on the Discovery. The feature was resurveyed in 1955 by the FIDS, who reported that col would be a better descriptive term.
