Narrative

Descubierta por la Expedición Antártica Francesa al mando del comandante Jules Dumont D'Urville en 1837-1840, quien nombró relieves entre el grupo de roca Duroch y roca Coupvent. El FIDS cartografió el islote en 1946, encontraron que el grupo no podía dividirse satisfactoriamente en 2 partes y que un nombre individual para los islotes era necesario. La actual descripción es de acuerdo a FIDS pues el nombre Duroch incluyó el grupo entero de islotes. Su nombre recuerda al alférez Joseph Duroch, del buque "Astrolabe" de la expedición. Roca que se extiende en un área de 3 millas, cuyo centro está a 1 milla al NW del cabo Legoupil, al NW de la costa de la península Luis Felipe.
