Ropebrake Pass (84°45′S 173°25′W) is a steep, narrow snow pass between the south end of Gabbro Hills and Mount Llano, permitting passage between the Barrett and Gough Glaciers. So named by the Southern Party of New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition (NZGSAE) (1963–64) because of the large number of rope brakes used in its crossing.
