Narrative

A small lake at the SE corner of Redcliff Nunatak on the S flank of Mackay Glacier, in Victoria Land. Redcliff Nunatak projects as a rounded mound of granite 300 m above the glacier surface. The ice is piled up on the W side and sweeps around the N and S sides to the lee side, where it is much lower, and where this lake has formed from meltwater. Given this descriptive name by the Western Journey Party, led by Taylor, of BrAE, 1910-13.
