Col, approx. 1 km wide,c. 200 m a.s.l. extending southwards from the gentle slopes of Terrapin Hill to the to the steep scree slopes below Förster Cliffs, James Ross Island. Wind erosion of the soft volcanic substrate has resulted in a stark yellowish surface covered in hundreds of angular dark-coloured basalt cobbles, closely resembling images of the planet mars as obtained by Lander spacecraft.
