Narrative

A narrow, steep-sided defile, in parts less than 1 mi wide, cutting through the coastal mountains E of Dee Ice Piedmont, W coast of Antarctic Peninsula. Photographed from the air by RARE in 1947. Surveyed by FIDS in 1948-50, and 1958. The UK-APC name is descriptive; the NW entrance is only partly visible to sledge parties traveling along the coast, and the true nature of the feature is completely hidden by the surrounding mountains.
