A small circular,permanently frozen lake residing in a narrow basin on the northern tip of the Henderson Massif with an estimated area of 4.0 ha. Given the location of the lake and the way it is hidden on the northern tip of the Henderson Massif, the name is appropriate. The name was first used in the paper published by Adamson & Pickard (Perenially Frozen Lakes at Glacier/Rock Margins, East Antarctica. Antarctic Earth Science. pp 470-472. Australian Academy of Science. Canberra).
