Egede G, the 3th item in C.A.Wood's list of Concentric Craters (1978) is noticeable near the lower left corner of Lunar Orbiter 4's photograph LOIV-104-h1. The location of Egede G is very near the northeastern end of Vallis Alpes. The proximity of the well-known Vallis Alpes is noticeable on LOIV-110-h3 (near the lower margin of the frame).
