Used for portage and sledges and probably suitable for tracked vehicles. The area was mapped from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition (1936-37), and was photographed by U.S. Navy (USN) Operation Highjump (1946-47). First traversed by an Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) party led by B.H. Stinear, May 13, 1957, and named for its association with Tryne Fjord.
