Description (see definition): The saddle at the head of Blue Glacier, overlooking the Howchin and Walcott Glaciers which drain toward Walcott Bay in the Koettlitz Glacier. The saddle is at the S end of the "Snow Valley" (upper part of Blue Glacier) mapped by Armitage in 1902, and subsequently wrongly omitted from maps of the British Antarctic Expedition (BrAE), 1910-13. The New Zealand Blue Glacier Party of the Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition (CTAE), 1956-58, established a survey station on the saddle in September 1957. They named it for Lieutenant A.B. Armitage, second-in-command of the British National Antarctic Expedition (BrNAE), 1901-04, in recognition of his exploration in this area.
