Names that other countries have for this feature:
Gap extending in a N-S direction between the Havre Mountains and Rouen Mountains, in the N part of Alexander Island. The N coast of Alexander Island was first sketched from a great distance in 1821 by the Russian expedition under Bellingshausen and this gap apparently represented by one of two open spaces between three high features. The gap was mapped in detail from air photos taken by the RARE, 1947-48, by Searle of the FIDS in 1960. Named by the UK-APC for the Russian group which observed this area in 1821.
