Information requested on Wizard's Wash-Bowl

In my copy of McMartin's "Discover the Adirondack High Peaks" (3rd printing, 1993) she refers briefly to a small pool or pond I've yet to read of elsewhere.
Concerning the trail from Indian Head to Fish Hawk Cliffs it reads "..from the intersection near Indian Head, head south, directly downhill, for a steep 160 foot drop to a col. Traverse in deep woods in the col, not far from a pool known as the Wizard's Wash-Bowl, and climb slightly to the top of Fish Hawk Cliffs.." (Page 181-2. This oddball name is not listed in the index.)
Why I haven't read their regs in 15 or 20 years, I assume bushwhacking is still verboten on AMR property. Has anyone eyeballed this presumably little body of water? I didn't spied it in my last hike thru. Its not on the 7.5 X 15 minute quad nor visible at Wikimapia.
Admittedly, I am a sucker for romantically named landforms. If Colvin had tagged Lake Tear-of-the-Clouds as Marv's Marsh or Disgusting Discharge-of-the-Orc, I would not have deviated from the hike up Skylight.
