Roaring Cliffs

Roaring Cliffs (86°23′S159°24′W / 86.383°S 159.400°W / -86.383; -159.400) is the high and precipitous rock cliffs just northward of Kutschin Peak on the west side of Nilsen Plateau, Queen Maud Mountains. The name was proposed by William Long, geologist with a United States Antarctic Research Program (USARP) field party that visited the area in the 1963–64 season. The name is descriptive of the sound made by the wind here; standing in the quiet, windless valley below, a roaring noise like an approaching train can be heard high up on the cliffs.
