This pass is elevated 560 m above sea-level and marks the lowest point of the continental water divide in the Southern Alps of New Zealand. A raindrop falling on the divide falls on a bifurcation point. It either drops into a creek that flows into the Pacific Ocean or into the Tasman Sea. Falling raindrops are the most common sight on the western slopes of this mountain range.
