Krall Crags

The Krall Crags (77°27′S166°49′E / 77.450°S 166.817°E / -77.450; 166.817) are two rock summits rising to over 1,400 metres (4,600 ft) on the northwestern slope of Mount Erebus, Ross Island, Antarctica. The feature is 1.2 nautical miles (2.2 km) west-northwest of Abbott Peak. The crags were named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (2000), at the suggestion of P.R. Kyle, after Sarah Krall who worked for more than over 10 years in providing support to science in Antarctica. She was cook and camp manager at the Lower Erebus Hut during the 1992–93 National Science FoundationNASADante robot experiment on Mount Erebus; she also managed the food room at McMurdo Station, was the hovercraft pilot, and has also been a helicopter technician.[1]
