Description (see definition): A pass 1,230 m high, immediately SW of Scripps Heights, leading from the head of Casey Glacier to the middle of Lurabee Glacier, in northeastern Palmer Land. The feature was first photographed from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth in Nov. 1935, and its southern portion was plotted from these photos by W.L.G. Joerg. It was rephotographed by U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS), 1940, and by Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE), 1947. This pass was used by a Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) survey party in Dec. 1960 and provided a good sledge route. So named because the pass was approached on the last day of 1960, the Scottish feast of Hogmanay.
