Names that other countries have for this feature:
A cirque forming a large embayment in Haskell Ridge in the Darwin Mountains. Discovered by the Victoria University of Wellington Antarctic Expedition (1962-63). It is the type locality for the Misthound Coal measures, a formation of the Beacon Sequence of the Darwin Mountains. So named because of the eerie bleakness and often mist-filled floor of the cirque, which contained many peculiarly shaped boulders resembling large dogs.
