Narrative

Pass 975 m high, located at the NE end of Louis Philippe Plateau. It marks the meeting place of three valleys of Trinity Peninsula, namely Broad Valley leading eastward toward Duse Bay, a valley leading northward to Lafond Bay, and another southward to Prince Gustav Channel. Discovered by the FIDS and so named because of the very bad weather experienced in the pass during a survey journey in April 1946.
