Names that other countries have for this feature:
The 250 m wide pass in Eastern Livingston Island bounded by Pliska Ridge to the SE and Burdick Ridge to the NW. Elevation just over 560 m. Part of the overland route from Balkan Plateau via the nameless saddle between Willan Nunatak and Burdick South Peak, then via Orpheus Pass to upper Perunika Glacier and Mount Friesland area. Midpoint located 6,100 m E of Sinemorets Hill. The name Orpheus was originally applied in 1995 to a neighboring peak, but due to priority of the existing British name form Willan Nunatak, transferred subsequently to the present feature.
