Description (see definition): A large, heavily crevassed ice dome about 30 mi S of Mount Twintop in Mac. Robertson Land. The feature had been seen by several parties traveling S from Mawson Station since 1957, but it had been avoided. In 1967, Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) surveyor J. Manning selected a route through the crevasses and established a beaconed tellurometer station on it. So named by Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) to indicate the risk taken in crossing the dome.
