Manole Pass (Bulgarian: проход Маноле, ‘Prohod Manole’ \'pro-hod ma-'no-le\) is the ice-covered saddle of elevation 2,350 metres (7,710 ft) separating Veregava Ridge from Doyran Heights in the east foothills of Vinson Massif in Sentinel Range, Ellsworth Mountains in Antarctica. It is part of the glacial divide between the upper courses of Dater Glacier to the southwest and its tributary Hansen Glacier to the northeast.
