The name was proposed by William Long, geologist with a U.S. Antarctic Research Program (USARP) field party that visited the area in the 1963-64 season. The name is descriptive of the sound made by the wind here; standing in the quiet, windless valley below, a roaring noise like an approaching train can be heard high up on the cliffs.
