Narrative

Fueron descubiertos el 28 de diciembre de 1842 por la Expedición Inglesa al mando del capitán James Clark Ross quien los denominó "Danger", pues aparecen en medio de gruesos fragmentos de hielo los cuales los ocultan casi completamente hasta que el buque está encima de ellos. Éstos están formados por un grupo de islotes, situados a 11 millas al ESE de punta Moody en isla Joinville, al NE de la península Luis Felipe.
