Named about 1916 for Charles McGonogall, prospector, who, in 1910, discovered and named this feature after Bill McPhee, a saloonkeeper from Fairbanks, who helped finance their expedition. McGonogall almost reached the north summit of Mount McKinley (now Denali), April 3, 1910, but stopped a few hundred feet below while his partners "Pete" Anderson and "Billy" Taylor made the first ascent.
