Description (see definition): Broad pass at 700 m, 2 mi ESE of Football Mountain on the ridge between Edisto Inlet and Tucker Glacier. The pass is an all-snow route that can be crossed by sledge, but there are two other saddles close E and W of Football Mountain that are no higher and are more easily crossed on foot, though more difficult by sledge because they are steeper and have stretches of bare rock. So named by the New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition (NZGSAE), 1957-58, because of its proximity to The Football.
