  • Epigraph: The Devil's Gap is a great cleft in the cliffs fronting the Southern Ocean. The walls are sheer, almost as though deliberately plumbed, and are about one hundred feet in height. The entrance of the Gap is possibly thirty yards wide, but the cleft narrows considerably to its inner end, and forms a kind of blind funnel, into which great waves roll endlessly. The Gap is always floored with a smother of turbulent white water, churned to froth by the conflict between the forces of nature. (Albany Advertiser 11/11/1935)
