In the centre of the bay was a nunatak, which from its shape at once received the name of the Alligator.
At each end of the nunatak there was a very fine bergschrund.
A number of the stones from Scott's nunatak were brought away because they were thickly overgrown with lichens.
Later I climbed the large nunatak Island, seven thousand feet high, near the west margin of the glacier.
The second nunatak was on the course; a sharp peak in the south, hidden by the contour of the uprising ridges.
Two Indians carried the baggage over the rocky moraine to the clear glacier at the side of one of the eastern nunatak Islands.
We very soon put our things together, and came down the nunatak even more quickly.
One of us, in any case, found immense enjoyment in rolling one big block after another down the steep slopes of the nunatak.
The schistose rocks from Scott's nunatak are streaked, and, in part, very fine-grained quartz diorite schists.
