Narrative

El nombre fue puesto por lo primeros foqueros americanos, debido a los fuertes soplos de vientos experimentados en este angosto paso. Paso situado en el lado SE de la isla Decepción, que forma la entrada a bahía Foster en las islas Shetland del Sur. Es un paso estrecho que mide 3 cables de ancho, está obstruido por bajos fondos y por la roca Ravn situada en su medianía. Su costa N es acantilada y se alza en forma de una pared vertical hasta una altura de 90 a 140 metros.
