The Gap was a deep cleavage in the Glacier that grew deeper every year. During the reign of Sigvat II of the Raumsdalian Empire, the Gap eventually linked with a similar gap on the northern side of the Glacier, dividing the Glacier in half and opening a narrow passageway that allowed the lands north and south of the Gap to have contact with one another.

In the Bizogot language, the word for "Gap" is also a lewd euphemism for vagina, and was sometimes used to refer to women as well.
