A small rapids at the west end of Kirkwood Lake. It forms along a short channel that drains from Phipps Lake, just 500 m to the west.

On mapsbyjeff.com this is marked as a 'small waterfall', requring a 70 m portage. I do not believe that this is very big at all. It is located along a mapped canoe route.
